God Still ACTS: 2019 Washington Conference Constituency Session
Prayer provided the spiritual bookends to the 60th Constituency Session of the Washington Conference. Delegates came from across the conference to participate in the session, held April 28, 2019, at the Auburn Adventist Academy Church in Auburn, Wash.
In his opening devotional, John Freedman, North Pacific Union Conference president, called on delegates to make it a session of prayer. “You can’t do church business unless you worship first,” he said. “We need wisdom that comes from the throne of God.”
And so they did, in music and in prayer circles around the meeting sanctuary — 300 people in small groups, entreating the Holy Spirit to be present. It was, in fact, an invocation of the very theme of the session, "God Still ACTS," even in the midst of a constituency business session.
