    Perspectives: General Conference 2016

    The UNY perspective on General Conference

    May 4, 2016 / By Steve Hustedt / .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    The Upper New York Conference “Perspectives” blog for the 2016 General Conference session will be a direct line between the Upper New York Conference delegation and the rest of the Upper New York Conference as the delegation worships, listens, discerns, and interacts with United Methodists from around the world at General Conference. It will go beyond the news of the day and share the delegation’s experience as they help to lead the Church forward on our behalf.

    While the General Conference “Perspectives” will provide deeper insight into the news coming out of General Conference and help to frame the news with an Upper New York perspective. It will focus on the stories, experiences, and insights of individual members of the UNY Conference Delegation. These individual perspectives – intertwined with the vast array news and reporting that will come out of General Conference – will make a much richer experience for those observing from Upper New York.

    General Conference “Perspectives” will not be an all-inclusive news summary; news will be covered in the news section of the UNY Conference website and other places. “Perspectives” also will not serve as a report from the entire delegation; a polished report will be shared at the 2016 Annual Conference session and through Conference communication channels.

    As General Conference approaches, remember Those following General Conference from a distance do not need to be passive observers. Let us actively listen to the experience of our delegation, and let us not forget to hold these leaders in prayer. 

    Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
