In today’s show, UMNS reporter Heather Hahn gives a 144 second summary (she’s that good!) of the General Administration Committee’s struggle to find consensus on restructuring the UMC. We also hear from UMNS social media coordinator Jay Voorhees, and Annie MacNeal, a reserve delegate from the New England Conference. There’s also a nice feature on the box artist who created a mural in the convention center. Hope you enjoy the show!
