Making sense of the delayed GC

One of my concerns about the Gen Conf being moved to Aug 2022 is that students (college,seminary, etc) and educators still aren't being given a chance to participate since the academic year begins in Aug for these groups. This could have been rectified with the move to 2022, but at a more convenient time frame for these possible delegates. Also, I can't help but wonder if the move from 2021 to 2022 was to avoid the possible violence and rioting that may again occur this spring/summer in Minneapolis with the upcoming trials of the police officers involved in the May 2020 incident. Covid restrictions and issues about travel and visas were probably major factors in the decision to move the date. But I suspect that concern about the safety of the participants and possible residual damage to city buildings was also a factor. Just a thought.
