Comprehensive Digest of Social Witness at the 220th PC(USA) General Assembly


Diversity & Representation

Items 06-08, 06-13, and 06-17: Amending Book of Order F-1.0403 “United In Diversity” and G-2.0401 “Election of Ruling Elders and Deacons”

Disapproved by the Assembly. These items proposed the elimination of specific categories of human condition and discrimination; replacing the guarantee of full participation and representation with the more innocuous wording, “shall strive to ensure” or “commits”; and replaced God’s union of “all persons” through baptism with the un-Reformed language of “all believers” and the removal of the wording “through baptism”.
