UCC General Synod Winds Up

If you go to the UCC website (www.ucc.org) 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).
