General Assembly

I won’t be at the General Assembly in Long Beach in a couple of weeks. The way that money is I have doubts I’ll be at GA next year, either.

So, gang: why do we do it? what do we gain from General Assembly, apart from the legal business part which takes up proportionally less and less of the proceedings each year?

I like it – a bit of splash, a few good workshops, visiting with friends: all are nice – but what would you say to justify it, if the Great Auditor of Heaven and Earth asked you to make a reckoning?

    This year, I’m keeping my eye on the new initiative to bring congregational presidents together — and the new insistence (I think it’s Bill Sinkford’s) to subtitle the General Assembly “a gathering of congregations.”
