C-016 to C-020
May 7, 2012 § 3 Comments
Fifteen C resolutions down… and lots to go. Forging ahead.
C-016: Western Kansas’ structural reform resolution — if you don’t know what this is, then you haven’t been reading in order.
C-017: Structure, Long Island.
C-018: Asks for $450,000 over three years for need-based scholarships for seminarians, to be distributed by the Society for the Increase of the Ministry.
C-019: Structure, Hawaii. Honestly, how many of these do we need? Anyone who has seen GC work knows that whether there are one or one hundred of these, ultimately, only exactly one of them will go to the floor, once crafting is completed by the legislative committee on Structure. Does anyone know what the rationale was for asking for an unnecessary pile of the same resolution?
C-020: It figures that immediately after complaining about the many identical structure resolutions would come… a different structure resolution. Rather than asking for a Special Commission and a Special Convention, Oregon instead asks the already-existing Standing Commission on the Structure of the Church to tackle this issue in the course of its continuing usual work and to report back with recommendations to GC15. I know that some people are in favor of this direction, while others prefer the Special Convention, but I will be interested to see how the legislative committee on structure ties this option into the polished resolution it will ultimately present to the floor, because to me, this actually seems like the proper and preferable way to go about it.
All right, I’m calling it a night; hope this helps.
