ALCOA, TN. (11:40 a.m., March 3) — Today, United Methodists in each of our nine districts will meet at 3 p.m. to pray and learn more about what happened at General Conference. We’ve got reporters stationed at each location and will share feedback soon.
Yesterday, we shared this story of how Holston pastors are responding to their communities following the actions at General Conference:
“Whether we are drowning in grief or beating our chests in triumph, the world is still broken. In the grand scheme of things, most of the world hasn’t even blinked at the General Conference proceedings.” Read “What can I say?”
The Rev. Tim Jones, communications director, continues to provide encouragement and information through our email newsletter, GC News. You can find a list of those editions here.
We’ve seen several follow-up stories in our local media. Here are a couple:

- The dividing line: Emotions run high at GC – The [Maryville] Daily Times
