05-Letter from L. Rus Howard - March 1, 2005, 2005
i found this letter via A Religious Liberal Blog and i am torn.
so there's a presbytery, clearly upset over the GA's stance on GLBT issues, calling for a split (read that second to last paragraph - legal action!!). i just started reading our Constitution and there's stuff in there about each leading according to our conscience. so, i guess they're taking action according to their consciences.
but...this doesn't seem a very presbyterian way of solving conflict. you know...isn't conflict resolution supposed to float upward in an orderly manner? First session then presbytery, then synod then General Assembly?
or is this young deacon ignorant of protocol?
