General Conference Update

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.

If there are other blogs out there about General Conference, let us know. We'll be happy to list them.
