Council of the Clergy Resolution

“While acknowledging with appreciation many of the exciting new initiatives that have been recently undertaken;

the clergy would also like to express sincere reservations and concerns with the seemingly rapid change in direction of the Bryn Athyn College and the General Church resulting from decisions and actions being made without sufficient prior counsel and discussion;

and we appeal to the bishop to provide leadership in implementing processes that will actively involve the Clergy in the review of past decisions that appear to stray from the Charter Purposes and meaningfully include the Clergy in the development of future plans.”

64 yea, 7 nay, 12 abstain


The Church of Truth Banquet

The Saturday evening “Stairway to Heaven Banquet” was a smashing success. There were over 125 people in attendance for well scripted program that included a well known gospel choir, songs and dance. The most powerful part for me was the original songs and poetry that were based on New Church thought. These were intensely personal portrayals of rising out of one’s heredity and environment, to a more spiritual state as guided by the Lord.
