Committee 1 presented its proposal on theletter from the church at Burlington-East re: synodical correspondence. After a round of discussion, the following was adopted:
Letter from the church at Burlington-East re: synodical correspondence
This letter is declared admissible.
The church at Burlington-East proposes to dispense with the procedure of acknowledging synodical correspondence and conveying the decision of synod with respect to it.
Synod considers this practice common courtesy. It also encourages interaction from the churches with the material of the broader assemblies.
Synod decide not to accede to the proposal of the church at Burlington-East.
