I have made some changes in the Resolution I submitted to the 2019 Great Plains Annual Conference. Along with the changes I included the following note:
The changes above (deletions crossed out and additions underlined) were made to avoid having the resolution declared out-of-order. They were made in light of Judicial Council Decisions 1297 and 1340 and after conversation with Bishop Saenz. I am disappointed the Great Plains Annual Conference cannot decide whether or not it’s money shall be expended for the purpose of enforcing the discriminatory, anti-LGBTQ+ policies found in our current polity, but I do not want the entire resolution to be declared out-of-order and set aside. I am hopeful that other means to the same ends will be successful.
If you no longer wish to have your name on the resolution you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (You will need to use the same email that you signed on with.) If you’re still supportive and have not yet signed the resolution you may do so at: https://goo.gl/forms/aG3y9HMlZNY8EoHD3
