As you know, the special General Conference
held February 23-26 approved the "Traditional
Plan" with some possible modifications after
being reviewed in April by Judicial Council. The
Traditional Plan means that rulings related to
clergy ordination and the performing of marriage
remains unchanged and the wording in the Book of
Discipline will not be changed.
Some of you have asked how this ruling might
affect St. John's. The short answer is that we
have always been a church with open hearts, open
minds and open doors and that will not change.
Please continue praying for the church, for
the denomination, and for our ministry to all
Below you will find Bishop Johnson's
repsonse to the ruling of the General Conference.
