Please join me in prayer for Bishop Jack Tuell and his wife Mrs. Tuell. Retired Bishop Tuell is being treated for prostate cancer and is currently very weak due to the combination of chemotherapy and the spread of the cancer. He remains in good spirits, but prayers are needed for his medical options and recuperative powers. He served as the presiding bishop of the Oregon-Idaho Conference from 1972 to 1980.

Your prayers are greatly appreciated. Thank you. lists Bishop Tuell’s address at 816 SO 216th St #637, Des Moines WA 98198-6331 for those who wish to send cards and other expressions of support.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
