One thought on “Call to Meeting

  1. Wish I could be with you folks, but I have a training that week down in Atlanta. I do think that you all might want to pay attention to the seating of the Central Cities Classis. The attempt to seat them at GS 2008 was denied on a technicality that will not be available at GS 2009. The failure of the GSC and the Commission on Church Order to act on the formation of this “classis” has set up a scenario by which they could be seated prior to any discussion on the validity of non-geographical classes or classes with so few churches. Greater Palisades has sent letteres to the CoCO and GSC about this situation. No reply other than acknowledgement of the correspondence has been received. We are hoping that thy will take some action at their October meetings. The formation of an overture will follow such response.
