Good news. We won.

We got some good news last week. The United Methodist Association of Communicators gave this blog a “Best in Class” award for internet communications.

The Call to Cook edged out other blogs, social media content, and website nominees submitted by agencies, annual conferences, and local churches throughout the United Methodist denomination. It is a high honor for me and for Holston Conference.

The award was announced, along with other awards, during an online presentation on March 10. The annual awards banquet was virtual for the second consecutive year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to the presentation, I was asked to submit a video accepting the award. “The video should be 1-2 minutes and reflect the spirit of your work,” according to instructions from the awards team. “We encourage you to have fun with it.”

Here’s how it turned out:

Thank you, Michael Feely, for holding the phone, for supporting me, and for marrying me.
