GC2012 Radio: May 1, 2012

It was a busy day. Today’s show features analysis from UMNS reporter Kathy Gilbert and UMR managing editor, Sam Hodges. Kathy talked with me about her morning, which was spent covering what might be the story of the day: the end of job guarantees for elders in the United Methodist Church. Sam gives a preview of a new UMC restructure alternative, commonly called “Plan UMC.” And, Art McClanahan caught up with volunteers working to feed the hungry. Hope you enjoy the show!
