Stretch the church




Bishop Ken Carter spoke about his perspective on encouraging young clergy, “stretching the church” through innovation and risk-taking and the need to “have a vision for something that does not now exist” in an interview during the Western North Carolina Annual Conference this past week. Bishop Carter delivered the sermon, “A Future of Hope,” for the Service of Commissioning of Provisional Members in the WNCC, and he emphasized finding God’s dream and vision in the world.
