GS 2007 Article 50 – Opening Devotions and Rollcall

The chairman called the meeting to order. He extended a welcome to everyone, especially to the students of the Ebenezer Canadian Reformed School who came to observe the plenary session of synod. The chairman explained some of the workings of synod to the students.

In keeping with the theme for this week about the ascension of Christ, the chairman read John 13:1-17 about the Lord’s preparation for his arrest and suffering. He highlighted the element of ascension and service in humility, and reminded the meeting that we are here to serve the churches. After he led in prayer the meeting sang Psalm 68:1 and 2. Rollcall was held. All members were present.
