“In my office, I happen to have our conference's yearly Journals going back to 1929," said Dr. Jay Harris, Conference Secretary. "Each Journal of the South Georgia Annual Conference tells the story of the Annual Conference Session for that year. It tells when and where we met, what bishop presided, what worship services were held, what business was conducted, what ministries were celebrated, who was ordained and commissioned, what clergy persons retired, who was remembered at their passing, what the laity did, what the program emphases were in the annual conference, and much more. You can look through the Daily Proceedings and remember what happened at the last session of the annual conference. The Journal contains directories, reports, and statistics, which makes it a good reference tool. The Journals provide an enduring witness of our Connection as United Methodist believers."

Format and publishing changes introduced a couple of years ago have resulted in tremendous cost savings for both the Conference and the individual purchaser. The convenience of online ordering also allows purchasers the ability to order copies throughout the year, not just during a pre-order window.
