The Rev. David Piltz, the conference’s Coordinator of Young People’s Ministries, invites all to join in a new weekly, 30-minute prayer meeting on Zoom for all conference members on Tuesdays at 12 noon, that started April 14.
“I felt called to organize this and shared it with the Bishop and Cabinet,” he said. “It is a time for silent prayer, prayer requests and sharing spoken prayers and scriptures. It’s a time for our Eastern PA United Methodist community to gather and pray for healing during this unprecedented time of difficulty and distress for many.”
Piltz expects it to last until “the virus isn’t an issue for us anymore,” and he adds that all ages are welcome. Indeed, such a conference-wide virtual gathering focused on prayer might draw true diversity in ages, races, viewpoints and other characteristics among participants. And as the outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic become more dire those participants just might grow in number.
Tuesdays, starting Apr 14, 2020, at 12:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
