Presbytery News

Posted by: Chelsea Badeau on Thu, May 5, 2011

On March 22nd, the Philadelphia Presbytery voted to delete language from the Book of Order that says anyone who is ordained must practice “fidelity in marriage between a man and a woman” or “chastity in singleness.” A majority of the nation’s Presbyteries (87) must agree if the Book of Order is to be amended: as of this writing, 83 have voted in favor. The vote in Philadelphia was 182 to 108, a wider margin for inclusiveness than the last time the Presbytery took a similar vote.
