From the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church:
In Florida, 18 elected delegates – nine clergy and nine lay members – are studying and praying for guidance as they look forward to the 10-day gathering of the global church that occurs every four years. Alternates and jurisdictional delegates also are boning up on issues expected to come before them.
Saturday, the delegation invited United Methodists from across the Florida Conference to share what’s on their hearts and minds. Ten speakers from various parts of the state responded to the invitation, and more than 70 people attended the delegation’s General Conference Listening Session at First UMC, Lakeland.
