I've been at General Conference in Fort Worth since Tuesday. I've been campaigning for campus ministry and lobbying on behalf of UMCMA. We've been busy! It's been hard to blog from a personal viewpoint. But I have been keeping an official blog on behalf of UMCMA.
Several people are blogging about General Conference. It's interesting, I was on the escalator, and the woman in front of me looked at my name tag and asked if I blogged. She recognized me as someone who has left comments on the UM Reporter blog. It was Amy Forbus who is both a delegate to General Conference and a staff person with the Reporter. I was surprised she was able to identify me that quickly!
At one point, I recognized Beth Quick in the hallway outside the legislative committee rooms. She was talking to other people and I was in a hurry to get to my own room to monitor a sub-committee so I didn't stop to identify myself and say hi.
Becca Farnum, who is one of the young people who gave the new Young Persons Address this year, is blogging here.
Luke Wetzel, a 20 year old from the Kansas East Conference, is the vice-chair for the Discipleship legislative committee.
