This year's General Conference promises to bring needed changes. Even though I have heard this many times before, I remain hopeful that the changes will be helpful. I promise these changes, if adopted, will effect you and your family. See the information about appointments, pension, power of the bishops, in particular.
With 87 days left until 2012 General Conference begins in Tampa, Fla., several resources to help prepare for the UMC's every-four-year lawmaking session are now available. An overview of issues presented at a recent Pre-General Conference News Briefing, an overview of the restructuring legislation that will go before the assembly and videos of the Pre-General Conference News Briefing are available. The Advance Edition of the Daily Christian Advocate, the official journal of General Conference, is now online and available for download. The advance contains all the legislation submitted for consideration by the delegates.
