1st Friday Letter

The first Friday of each month (or there abouts) the Rev'd. Dr. George Freeman, General Secretary of the World Methodist Council, sends out a letter to the World Methodist Council Executive Committee. This month Dr. Eugenio Duarte, newly elected General Superintendent of the Church of the Nazarene, made Dr. Freeman's letter.

The letter can be viewed on the WMC website, under News and Events, then under 1st Friday Letter, by clicking on July-August 2009 1st Friday Letter, or simply by clicking here and then clicking on the July-August 2009 link.

Also in that letter, one will find an advertisement for a theology conference sponsored by the Wesleyan Methodist Church of New Zealand (the New Zealand branch of The Wesleyan Church in the U.S.), in cooperation with the Church of the Nazarene. The conference features speakers including Dr. Tom Noble of Nazarene Theological College in England.

It should be noted that, although Dr. Freeman gives me credit for the article on Dr. Duarte, I simply mentioned the subject to him and pointed him to the link for the story. I had nothing to do with the actual writing of the actual article. Still, I'm always happy to see the Church of the Nazarene make World Methodist news.
