GS 2013 Article 57 – Opening Devotions

The chairman called the meeting to order and the assembly sang Psalm 22:3, 4. Rev. Bouwman then read 2 Chronicles 13 and led in prayer. All members of synod were present. Condolences were expressed to br. Casey Leyenhorst whose brother-in-law, br. John Deleeuw of Yarrow, had passed away late the previous week. It was noted that this would necessitate the departure from synod of Rev. Eikelboom, minister of the church in Yarrow. The first alternate, Dr. A.J. Pol, will be asked to take his place during his temporary absence.
