I find it very insightful and clarifies the realities facing this year's general Conference,

I would change only one thing. To her last sentence I would make this change: "Grace will come if General Conference delegates who are /// part of the 'in crowd' humble themselves collectively to discern and act upon God's will for the denomination."

I see the problem being the need for the "in crowd" to be the ones to humble themselves collectively. I think the others are already there.

Despite all the concern about conservative v.liberal, the real political situation is between those who are power-accruing and those who are open to allowing God to have the power!

What are you doing outside your buildings for the people most in need in your communities, the state of Iowa, and this world? Are all of your many activities making a difference? Where’s your runway?”
