During the opening of the 173rd Annual Session of the Monrovia District Conference at the John Jackson Powell Memorial United Methodist Church, Bishop Samuel Quire, the Resident Bishop of the Liberia Episcopal Area, called on United Methodists to live as true examples of Jesus Christ.

Emphasizing unity and fellowship, Bishop Quire encouraged members to be the “salt and light” of the world.

Addressing the need for self-reflection, Bishop Quire urged the district and church members to align their lives with the teachings of Jesus Christ. He stressed the importance of maintaining brotherly love within the church, upholding the true identity of a Christian.

Conference Secretary Reverend James Labala emphasized the importance of recognizing and reclaiming the church’s identity. He called on members to actively work towards reestablishing the United Methodist Church as the conscience of society.

The 173rd Annual Session, themed ‘Our Identity’ and drawing inspiration from Matthew 5:13-16 and 1 John 1:5-7, brought together distinguished members of the Liberia Episcopal Area. The ongoing conference is set to conclude on December 10, 2023.
