GS 2019 art 71

GS 2019 Article 71 – Adoption of Acts

A question was raised regarding the position of amendments in an article of the Acts. Past practice has been to report matters chronologically, and thus amendments made on the floor of a synod in plenary session would be recorded first in an article. It was objected that this draws undue attention to the amendment. The first clerk proposed that amendments be placed at the end of the article. This suggestion was discussed and adopted, to be applied to all the records of the acts of GS 2019. Prepared articles of the Acts were corrected and adopted
