General.Conference 2012

I leave on April 23 to attend the General Conference of the United Methodist Church. If all the technology works, I will be bringing you comments and pictures by way of my iPad.


  1. Sherry, What do you think about the letter Adam Hamilton sent out with Senior Pastors from the Southern UMC. No Senior Pastors from the Northern UMC. No Midwest, NW, and NE. Something is interesting here. Verne Hoshal, Jr.

    1. I'm thinking this may be the result of two things. First, the majority of our very large UM churches are in the south. Second, one of the concerns about endorsing the restructuring of the General Conference Boards and Commissions is that there will not be not enough representation to reflect the diversity of our church. While Hamilton noted that this may be a problem, he endorsed the plan. Some pastoral leaders may not want to do that.

  2. Thank you for keeping us in the know! It will be great to get your on the spot insights and reactions.
