I am off to GA tomorrow! I will be bringing Mercy Junction swag to give away and hope to see a lot of friends their. Congrats to Neal Presa for winning moderator on the 4th ballot. Also, Congrats to good friend Tara for making Vice-Moderator.
People have been asking me if there are any hot button issues that I am watching at this GA. The ones that I am interested in might be surprising to many. My wife’s committee is making a report tomorrow morning. I have watched how difficult navigating this process has been for her. I thank my lucky stars that I have declined to be on any committee work for GA. I am thankful for those who do the work, but wonder why after all the grief they seem to get in public? Sometimes, I just want to tell people to quit being so crabby about everything and chill
I will also be watching the divestment issue quite closely. Many close know my opinions on these issues, but I have never made them public on my blog. I will not here, but if you see me at GA I will talk with you about an issue that I think we oversimplify.
As you probably guess, one of the reasons that I am a Presbyterian because I am really into all of this. I am a dork. When people have come on this blog to question my commitment to the Presbyterian Church I laugh inside. I actually read these reports.
If you are at GA come by and say hello. There are never strangers, just friends I haven’t met yet.
