Here are some random Thoughts from my first day observing as a visitor at General Conference.
I'm impressed with the openness and transparency that is part of the process. Each of the committee meetings are open meetings to observers. There is great concern for how the process works so that it is fair to all and voices can be heard.
We are intentional about inclusiveness and diversity.
We are around 40% non American with regard to representation in the 988 delegates. That will only grow.
We are a global connection and will hopefully restructure ourself to go where the growth is happening (outside the US) and not necessarily where the money is (US).
