Greetings from the Floor of Conference

i am currently sitting at table 15 on the floor of Conference. We are currently working our way through different proposals that are in response to the Comprehensive Review that will be coming before General Council later this year. I’ll admit that some of it is tedious, but at the same time, it is important. I’ve been known to speak a lot at various church gatherings, but this time I’m spending more time listening. After all this is my first conference, so I compare it to my own experiences from previous church gatherings. A very cool feature is the use of a DOTS electronic voting system, where votes are tallied quickly. By virtue of this, standing votes and other procedures that slow down the flow of business are virtually eliminated. 

So that’s a first impression as I am continuing to watch and listen (and vote). 

More to come…
