Holy Convocation: I recall as a child the process of getting ready for Convocation. This included packing our bags and deciding to drive or fly to Memphis, Tennessee. No matter the mode of travel we knew we would stay in the Peabody for it was truly the place to be. We were fascinated by seeing the Bishops and Supervisors in their holy attire and their personal fashions.  The anointing was one thing that resided in their speaking, teaching, and even a kind word of encouragement. I looked forward to the relationships that you would build. We had friends that we knew we’d see each time the first week in November would come around and whether it was once a year or not it was a blessing. As the cities changed the excitement and love for the National Church still resides in my heart and I look forward to attending.
