Unity amid diversity
United Methodists attended several recent events designed to build bridges of understanding between people of different faiths and to honor the compassionate work of diverse faith communities.
A number of United Methodists took part in all these events; sponsor tables were funded by the Oklahoma Conference’s Mission & Service Ministry Team. The team has under its umbrella the work of Christian Unity and Interreligious Concerns. The ecumenical officer is Twila Gibbens, pastor at Tulsa-St. Paul’s.
Two banquets are featured in these photos. Also in Tulsa, the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice held its 54th annual awards dinner. Nancy Day, a Boston Avenue member, is the center’s executive director, and Maggie Jewel, a member of Jenks UMC, is Fund Development Director.
