Elizabeth Bell is a half-time licensed local pastor and full-time student at Garrett Evangelical Theological seminary. She's been following the General Conference by social medial and a bit of the live stream. "In some ways I'm waiting with anticipation to what will be the next part of the conversation...sometimes with joyful anticipation and (sometimes) with a little bit of dread or anticipated sorrow." She adds, "For some things it would be nice if we could have mini General Conferences." Deborah Coble has the report from a phone interview with Pastor Bell.
