Harriett Jane Olson writes: "I left Tampa on May 5 with hope bubbling up in my thoughts about possible structures for The United Methodist Church."

General Conference (April 24 through May 4 in Tampa, Florida) is the top policymaking body of The United Methodist Church. The conference revises The Book of Discipline (book of church law) and Social Principles and adopts resolutions on current moral, social, public policy and economic issues. It also approves plans and budgets for churchwide programs for the next four years. 2012 will be a historic year for United Methodist Women.
