"Jesus' Hope Ignites!"
Beloved Second Episcopal District Family:
Arelis and I are pleased to share with you, information about the upcoming summer meeting, which is six months away. We are counting the days when we will come back together unified and working towards, “Christ Centered Principles 4 Purposeful Change” which leads to #REAL (Restoring Hope, Empowering the People, Advancing the Kingdom and Leaving a Legacy).
We promised that we would have two meetings per year, one in the summer and one in the winter. This is our attempt to roll out the first of these meetings. We hope you are looking forward to us coming together in this new venue, with exciting activities, programs and training opportunities being planned just for you. Everyone will find something for them at this meeting.
We want to thank our Christian Education Director, Sister Robin Porter Smith and all others across the Second Episcopal District who are working diligently to make this meeting informative and eventful for everyone. A special expression of appreciation to Dr. William R. Harvey, President of Hampton University for opening up this beautiful campus for our first Summer Meeting. This is extraordinarily exciting since it will allow so many young people to experience a few days on a University campus.
We hope this packet of information will provide you with everything needed as you prepare for our time together. In the Spirit of Hope, we remain,
