Recommended readings: Denominational work on global social issues at General Conference

On a day when the General Conference news cycle is dominated by rumors of schism and episcopal affirmations of unity, I thought it would be edifying to wrap up some of the good work done by a united UMC that has been celebrated at General Conference. GC2016 has seen actions, celebrations, and rallies related to its work on the global issues of health, environmental stewardship, migration, education, and indigenous rights.
