The 2012 General Conference has legislation that could change the denomination significantly. The Ministry Study Commission has proposed some sweeping changes to the way we do ministry, particularly around the guarantee of a fulltime appointment. There is other legislation focusing on renewing a culture of call to ministry, especially among younger people.
I have written a blog on this subject if you are interested: http://umcministrystudyhawaii.blogspot.com/
Our delegation and our denomination need your prayers. Thanks so much.
The grace and aloha of Jesus Christ be with you.
