GS 2022 Article 34 – Reopening

Synod reopened in plenary session. The chairman observed all synod members were present. He welcomed everyone, including two new fraternal observers. He had those present sing Psalm 67:1,2 and read Philippians 1:12-30. Prior to prayer he informed the assembly that Dr. Reuben Bredenhof had accepted his appointment as Professor of Ministry and Mission. Arrangements were being made to have the CRTS senate, staff, and retired professors (with spouses) be hosted at a dinner on Monday evening and for Dr. Reuben Bredenhof and Dr. Arjan de Visser to address Synod. The chairman also noted, with thankfulness, that the federal House of Commons had decided to retain opening prayer in its proceedings. He then led in opening prayer.
