When it came down to it, it wasn't even close. Bruce's campaign, his presence on the stage, and his answers were what propelled him to become the 218th GA.
The race for the moderator came down to Bill Teng - an evangelical pastor from Washington DC, and to Bruce - an emergent, young, and liberal pastor from San Francisco.
In the end, Bruce's personality and presence was too much for Bill to overcome.
While Bruce may be on the other side when it comes to the ordination of gays, I believe he will be a fair and faithful moderator. I also believe that he will represent the PC(USA) well. Please continue to keep the GA in your prayers.
More to come soon.
