Bishop Gregory Palmer of the Illinois Conference will join Stephen Gunter, associate dean for Methodist Studies and research professor of evangelism and Wesleyan studies at Duke Divinity School, in a discussion on the "Call to Action" report by the United Methodist Church. Dean Richard Hays will moderate the discussion.

The "Call to Action" was formulated by the Connectional Table of the United Methodist Church in response to an initiative from the Council of Bishops. In the spring of 2011, the CTA Steering Team released a report that analyzes the levels of vitality in contemporary Methodism and calls the church to redress the situation of increasing irrelevance in which the church finds itself.

The discussion will also include a pizza luncheon.
