A gift to the church
Our standards have not changed -- that is the phrase I keep hearing now that we have adopted the PUP report.
Hopefully, people will accept this and move on with being the church.
As Marge Carpenter, former moderator, said on the floor of the GA, "I'm tired of this conflict. It's getting in way of the church, in the way of mission, in the way of evangelism."
The PUP report has been called a gift to the church. Let's accept it as a gift and move on.
