Update 4/28/99

Regarding the Supervisory Response Meeting with David Bennett and Bishop Talbert concerning David Bennett's 7 complaints.

Thank you for the many prayers, counsel, and support that has been given to me from across the country. Without a doubt it was felt by John Grenfell, myself, and a layperson of mine who was allowed to stay in the meeting, Jacque Vance.

We reached a tentative understanding in 6 of the 7 complaints which the District Superintendent will be putting in writing. I will then have the opportunity to review the written understanding & further negotiations could and probably will result.

At this point it would appear that our efforts will be focused on resolution and reconciliation rather than the Administrative or Judicial track.

This is encouraging because it would suggest that another year in this appointment is likely for me. Your encouragement and support enabled me to get through this portion of the process. My church and I are very grateful to you all. I will continue to keep you posted.

Blessings, Mike
