Rev. Dan Bader shares thoughts about GC

By: Rev. Dan Bader, Southwest District Superintendent, Dakotas UMC

Rev. Dan Bader sat down with Doreen Gosmire, Dakotas Conference director of communications, to share some insights, impressions, and hopes for the 2024 General Conference.

Rev. Bader shares this memory from a past General Conference he attended: 

"I went to General Conference in Cleveland and was a page for two days. That was kind of fun. You were busy running, so you didn't really get to participate. I remember one moment in worship where there were people who, were singing. I don't remember the hymn, but people were singing in their native language a hymn. In the midst of all of that, you could just feel the Spirit's presence saying, 'We are together.' In the midst of how different we are from where we come, we are one body of Christ.'"
