The subcommittee looking at the 7 resolutions for SSB and committee tried to choose one that might be a good moot resolution and tried to hear voices from across the spectrum–you will see a rudimentary proposal that collects various resolves and uses the title for C056 and liturgies for blessings.
Jack: What we did was starting with C056 is take the second and third resolves of C056 and make the amendment the 1st and second resolve of the amended resolve. And taking from C031 the language about the legal contexts and making that the last clause of the first resolve. And then taking the first of C056 and making it the third but removing the language about inclusion in EOW–that was left open ended. We also in that 3rd resolve and 4th include the HOB theology committee to work with the SCLM and the 4th resolve is largely from C031 about the process that resolution recommended for that work to be done in
Candler: obviously we are not going to perfect anything, but let’s have some conversation’….
Lee: C031 has a lot better way starting off the gate as far as language gives
Henry: Perhaps it would get a better hearing if paragraph 3 was first, calling for the dev of liturgies rather than authorizing liturgies not yet prepared.
