[God] rounded you up from all over the place, from the four winds, from the seven seas. (Ps. 107:3 msg)
Tradition is like an envelope that shapes our path for the journey. United Methodist clergywomen have formed a tradition of gathering in the United States since 1975 and internationally since 2006. The plan for a global gathering of UM clergywomen in 2014 has been on hold due to budgetary reasons, however, this should not mean that UM clergywomen’s supportive system will be weakened. The 2014 WellSprings was dedicated to reflections on what physical gatherings mean to UM clergywomen in a global context and to exploration of creative ways of connecting and communicating among UM clergywomen and supporting each other as a global community.
