Julie's Travels-General Conference

So from April 21-May 3, I spent my life living out several things I'd been working on for what's called General Conference.  It's the top legislative body of The United Methodist Church.  It meets every 4 years and it's a pretty big deal.  One of my responsibilities was the Young People's Address, where 6 youth and young adults addressed the church with their views and hopes for the church.  Here are some links to the awesome address...  There were many ups and downs, legislation passed and failed, it was exhausting, I'm glad it happened and it gives us hope for the next 4 years.
