The Eternal Kansas City

Van Morrison released this enigmatic yet engaging tune about Kansas City way back in 1977:

Why do I share that with you?

Because I’m in the “eternal Kansas City” for a couple of days this week.

It’s part of a gathering of the pastors of the 100 largest United Methodist churches in the United States. And we’re meeting at the biggest one of them all: the Church of the Resurrection in suburban Leawood, Kansas.

We’re learning from one another, challenging one another, and brainstorming on ways to bring new energy to United Methodism as a whole.
