GC2012 Radio: That’s all folks…

On our final show, we hear delegates react to this afternoon’s judicial council ruling, which deemed “Plan UMC” unconstitutional. That ruling led to an evening plenary session that continues as I write this. Plus…the Rev. Becca Clark talks with me about Twitter and the guaranteed appointment debate that took place earlier in the week. A few notes on just how much content was accessed during GC2012. More than 500 pieces – audio, video, photos, and blog posts ongc2012conversations.com and umc.orghad 1.2 million page views.

That’s a lot of hard-working communicators. It has been a blessing to be part of the effort.
