GS 1980 ARTICLE 85 – Re-opening –¬† Acts

The Chairman calls on the brothers to sing Psalm 107:1. He reads from Isaiah 42:5-13 and leads in prayer.

The Acts, Articles 78-84, are read and adopted.

A letter is received from the Church of Burlington-West, the Church for the Inspection of the Archives, in which Synod is informed that the archives were found to be in good order. Ordinarily this letter would have been declared inad­missible due to the fact that it was received after the official closing date for mail;

however, seeing that it was given by the Church at Burlington-West to a member of Synod well-before the deadline, who in turn forgot to pass it on, Synod decides to accept it.
