GC issues that have us excited! Part 2

October 12, 2011

There will be hundreds of issues discussed at the 2012 General Conference in Tampa, Florida.  On this blog we’ll try to cover many of them between now and May 2012.  At the delegation’s last meeting we discussed the issues most interesting to us.

What issues are you thinking about?  Send us a comment.  We’d like to hear!

Here’s what we are excited about:

John – worldwide nature of the church and the place of Health and Welfare Ministries in the UMC

Steve Z. – the General Board responsible for pension overreached and is now responding to the concerns they have heard

Chris – extent and nature of lobbying before and at GC

Jenny – who is in and who is out debate distracts from other issues

Diane – the reassignment of bishops for the North Central Jurisdiction

Jen – restructuring of the global church

Dan D. – concern over preserving an institutional structure instead of a focus on mission

Carrie – the sustainability of guaranteed appointments in an itinerant system
