ST. LOUIS (Feb. 23) — Rev. Kim Goddard, delegation leader, describes the items that are resting on Holston’s tables as the first day of General Conference gets underway: “The net from Convocation; a prayer shawl from the Holston Conference UMW mission team; and a cross from Kodak UMC that every person held (even the children in Sunday school) and prayed over last Sunday.”
