Greetings! Presbyterians are pouring into Minneapolis today! So many Calvinists ... in such a small space! Registration is going well, although the much coveted GA Tote Bag (it is different each GA) is not yet available! There was some sort of delay in delivery, so everyone is curious about what it will look like, and also having to find other totes to carry necessary paperwork. The Convention Center is buzzing with folks who are registering, checking out the Plenary Hall, and seeking the rooms for particular committee deliberations.
Dear God, shower your grace, mercy and discernment upon those who gather in your name this week. We are only a small part of your large family here on earth, but pray for big hearts and open minds as we conduct the business of our denomination. May all that we do glorify your name. Amen.
