ALCOA, Tenn. — We’ve got two new posts for you.

What happened in St. Louis” gives you an overview of proceedings at General Conference from a Holston Conference seat.

“The hardest part of the conference for me was knowing that there would be no winners, only losers, regardless of whichever plan had the most support,” said delegate John Tate. Read the story.

Holston delegates consult during a break on Feb. 26, the final day at General Conference in St. Louis. From left to right: Rev. Sandra Johnson, Rev. Carol Wilson, Del Holley, Rev. Kim Goddard.

We’re also sharing what we hope will be one of the first among many commentaries from Holston Conference members in response to General Conference:

“Few can imagine what it’s like, sitting in a parked car for an hour, as your child tells you they are going to hell for how they feel about love.”

Rev. Mark Kilbourne
