General Assembly Adenda 2012: Item 15

Here’s another item coming up on the General Assembly Agenda in Orlando this week:

Item 15 seeks to permit women to be fully represented in roles that have hitherto been restricted only to men.

These include:

a) A pastor’s spouse serving as his or her assistant/

b) Women serving on a Congregational Trial Board in discxiplinary cases.

c) Women serving on the Church of God Publications Board.

d) Women serving on the US Missions Board.

The removal of these outdated and senseless gender restrictions, in my opinion, makes such obvious good sense that there’s not much more I can say on the subject.  Needless to say, I will be voting for this item, even though it comes about 100 years too late!
