General Conference

The General Conference of the UMC is going on as I write this.  A pastor friend of mine (Talbot Davis) blogged about it here and it sparked an idea for a blog post in my mind.

One of the things Talbot wrote is that the comments and tweets are often more interesting than the happenings at conference.  So true.  In fact, it's so true that I actually copied and pasted some of the tweets and comments into a word file.

So here they are for your enjoyment:

-The church ought to be a safe place with a dangerous message!

-Tolerance says "I tolerate your differences." Respect says "I honor the God in you even if we disagree."

-Programs don't make disciples; disciples make disciples.

-If you can only be prophetic when you have nothing to lose, you're not really being prophetic.

-Unity does not mean uniformity.

-The call to repent of sin is all inclusive. GLBT folks have always been welcome in Methodism to change and repentance.

-GC is like an accident, you don’t want to watch but you can’t help it.

-You cannot follow Jesus if you are stuck in your seats.
