Minute from Annual Session
After many hours of listening and praying, we have come to unity around the following recommendation: That we express deep appreciation for the work of the Elders on this issue. We did not find consensus regarding the Elders’ report.
Continued discernment of the Elders’ decision to release West Hills Friends Church from Northwest Yearly Meeting is sent to a meeting that will consist of representatives and one youth representative from each area. The Administrative Council will form the parameters for this meeting.
The Administrative Council will take up this discussion on October 14-15, 2016.
The called meeting for representatives has been set for December 9-10, 2016 at Newberg Friends Church. Brad Holton, clerk sent the following letter out regarding the meeting.
