UCC General Synod Winds Up

If you go to the UCC website ( you may be able to navigate around the cheerleading and verbiage (what are “Big Things”, as opposed to little things – like “Church Stuff”?) to find the GS resolutions and their disposition at this year’s General Synod. Or you can click here.

This was a calmer, gentler GS than in recent years – you can read FWC’s Bob Thompson’s comments about that here . The resolution that I think would have stirred most controversy – In Support Of Physician Assistance in Dying – was referred to Justice & Witness Ministries “with the recommendation that it be considered in the study process established by the Twenty-Sixth General Synod in the resolution, “Legalization of Physician Aid in Dying” (07-GS-37).
