At General Synod 26 in Hartford, Conn., United Church News will publish five daily news digests. As space allows, we'd like to tell others about your favorite General Synod memories over the past 50 years.
Was there a particular moment that touched you? A particular vote that encouraged you? A particular person or preacher who inspired you? Remember, if you're brief and concise (mo more than 75 words), you're much more likely to find yourself in print. If you're too wordy, our editors will tire of your autobiography and move on to the next submission.
As with all letters, your comments may be edited for brevity and clarity. Be sure to include your name, the name of your local church, and your city and state.
Send your handwritten responses by June 1. E-mailed responses to firstname.lastname@example.org are granted a bit more wiggle room. Just send to us before General Synod starts on June 22.
Be sure to put "Soapbox" in the subject line.
