The Contact is committed to keeping the Oklahoma Conference informed regarding news that affects United Methodists in Oklahoma. For that reason, we are sending out a corrected copy of the June 2019 issue of the Contact, which contained errors related to the health and benefits that were passed at Annual Conference. We apologize for the incorrect information and have corrected the errors, both in the newspaper and on our website.
Living hope requires preparation on our part. In chapter 1, verse 13, Peter writes, “Therefore, once you have your minds ready for action and you are thinking clearly, place your hope completely on the grace that will be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed” (1 Peter 1:13 CEB). There are two prerequisites for living hope. First, our minds have to be ready for action. People or churches that fail to take action are usually stuck or dying.
With minimal discussion and a show of hands, the Oklahoma Annual Conference voted to pass two major changes to clergy and staff benefits: recalculating a retiree subsidy according to years served and adopting a group health insurance plan.
