Pamela Mott of Rhode Island offers reflections on General Convention 2012

Posted by Kendall Harmon

By the time we arrived, we had already been inundated with information. The "Blue Book" came out a month or so before convention with 758 pages of legislative information - reports of commissions, committees and agencies of the church, resolutions, and biographies of those running for a position on various councils.

First impressions: the convention center is huge, and so is the church - people from all over with different viewpoints, different worship expressions - and all seeking to find the way we can be church together.

Read it all.

The church is “huge”? I guess it demands on what one defines as “huge”.

My apologies: “demands” should be “depends”.

Huge? Maybe. It is shrinking every year! Don’t these people understand numbers?? I would say that all this *new thang* ain’t doing so well for evangelism and adding to the numbers.
