My husband and I were clergy for about 20 years. I find it fascinating. We aren't pastors of churches right now.

Our Sunday School Class was following it. DH and I were Lay Delegates to Annual Conference for about 8 years so I always find this stuff interesting. I agree it should be interesting to see how this restructuring plays out. That certainly didn't end up looking like it did in the beginning.

Frankly, I can't really remember a General Conference that wasn't controversial. Soon the speculation will begin about the next one, I suppose.

Blessings,
Linda

I've been following it. I have to admit, lots of controversy. I have some concerns about some of the decisions and how they will play out. It will be interesting. I remember hearing years ago about how 2012 GC was going to be a historic GC. I guess it was historic, but not in the way expected.
