Wesleyan/Anglican: More Resolution News
More good news concerning my resolutions to next summer's Nazarene General Assembly! My district's delegation met early this week and approved seven of my eight resolutions. This, in addition to East Ohio's action (cf., my Nov. 21 post, below), means that all eight of my resolutions will make it to General Assembly!
The resolutions that my district approved that were not covered by links in the East Ohio post are as follows: Nazarene Anthem, Deacons & Elders, and the Church Government Flow Chart.
The one resolution that East Ohio approved, but my district did not approve was the one on Ordination & the Superintendency. That means that four of my eight resolutions will be sponsored by two districts (so far!). This is important, because weight is added to the resolutions when it is seen that more than one district is sponsoring them. - Hopefully, the Board of General Superintendents will have matching resolutions on baptism & membership and on deacons & elders, seeing that I presented these same resolution (essentially) at the last G.A., and they were then referred to the Board of General Superintendents.
As I understand it, at least some of my resolutions are being presented to another district committee. If I hear more about that, I will post it. It is my hope that others are presenting them to their district's delegation, as well. - If you would like to do so, but have questions on how to go about it, please let me know! Time is running out!
