GS 2010 Article 1 – Opening of Synod on behalf of the Convening Church

On behalf of the convening church the Rev. Dr. Gijsbert Nederveen called the meeting to order. He requested all who were present to sing Psalm 93 and then read Psalm 93. After giving a meditation on this passage he led the assembly in prayer. A word of welcome was extended to all present, especially the delegates to synod and those representing churches with which the Canadian Reformed Churches (CanRC) have ecclesiastical fellowship (EF) or contact. Rev. Nederveen’s opening address can be found in Appendix 1 of these Acts.
