Carolyn Lawrence: July 2020
During her address to this year's virtual Methodist Conference, newly elected Vice President Carolyn Lawrence said, "I have received a lot of encouraging words and Scriptures sent to me in the last year and love this quote from Heidi Baker in her book 'The Hungry Are Always Fed'. She says:
'God is not about using the mighty, but the willing. He is not into using amazing people, just ones who are prepared to lay their lives down to him. God is not looking for extraordinary, exceptionally gifted people, just laid down lovers of Jesus who will carry his glory with transparency and not take it for themselves.'
The immense honour of being elected to this role is to me, an opportunity to bring glory to Jesus in any way I can. I would love it after this year if someone could say that they have come to know Jesus, or that they have been encouraged to use their gifts in ministry, or have grown in their faith."
