In the midst of so much anxiety, fear, hurt, and distress over the current state of The United Methodist Church, clergy and laity members to Annual Conference were invited to share “how it is with my soul”.  Participants were asked to share the impact on them personally as well as on their congregations.  Two reports from recent meetings in Kansas and Minnesota offered passionate perspectives on our current reality.  While the time offered was short, it was intended to make sure all our members to Annual Conference had opportunity to share feelings, thoughts, and reactions.
