The clerks are in agreement that we are divided and did not reach consensus with the questions before us. We sense that we do agree that the elders did the best they could with the decision they made.

The Administrative Council will take the discussion up again before mid-year boards and report to the representatives at mid-year boards regarding how we are going to answer question #4.
Question #4: With the hope of keeping as much of our yearly meeting together as possible, what is best for the yearly meeting?
