Tampa is the most stressful city in the United States.
Action within the General Administration Committee is likely to help the city retain that ranking.
The committee will review a whopping 110 petitions — many of which seek a new structure for the 13 general agencies.
Early plans called for the committee to review proposals from the Connectional Table, a “Plan B” proposal from assorted delegates, and a plan proposed by the Methodist Federation for Social Action. After reviewing all three proposals, early plans called for a vote on which plan they would seek to perfect.
Already, architects of the Connectional Table have withdrawn their plan to create a 15-member Center for Connectional Mission and Ministry. Expect members of that group to offer a substitute motion as soon as the starting gun is fired. However, supporters of Plan B will also offer a substitute motion to begin with that proposal. MFSA may do the same.
I can imagine a parlimentary quaqmire in which substitute to the substitue motions are offered.
Say your prayers for members of that committee.
