    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    Perspectives: South Korea Trip 2017

    Bishop Webb’s sermon at the Bupyeong Methodist Church

    Earlier this year, from June 6-June 14, Upper New York Area Resident Bishop Mark J. Webb, several members of the UNY Cabinet, and other leaders in the UNY Conference, as well as many of their partners or spouses, traveled to Bupyeong, South Korea to visit the Bupyeong Methodist Church.

    Each day, they attended 5:30 a.m. services focused on prayer, among other services at Bupyeong Methodist Church as well as other Korean Methodist churches. They also did a lot of sightseeing.

    Several Cabinet members have participated in the blog series about this trip to South Korea.

    This last blog features the sermon Bishop Webb delivered at Bupyeong Methodist Church on their last day. Zeroing in on Matthew 11:28-30, Bishop Webb encouraged the congregation to give up control, turn to Jesus, and trust Jesus. He said, “When we are yolked to Christ, we move in the same direction and at the same pace. When you are yolked to Jesus Christ, you cannot go in a different direction than Jesus.

    Bishop Webb reminded the congregation that Jesus wants them to rest, to not only go in the direction that Jesus encourages them to go in, but also, to go at the pace Jesus sets, which is never hurried.
