Je Suis Parisien

Student officers display a US giant national flag on the Trocadero square with the Eiffel tower in the background during a solemn tribute to the victims of the 9/11 attacks on September 11, 2011 in Paris. Several commemorations are held in France today to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks which killed almost 3,000 people in NYC and Washington and plunged the US into an era of war.

Council Resolution

Resolved (64 yes, 7 no, 12 abstain):

While acknowledging with appreciation many of the exciting new initiatives that have been recently undertaken;

the Clergy would also like to express sincere reservations and concerns with the seemingly rapid change in direction of the Bryn Athyn College and the General Church resulting from decisions and actions being made without sufficient prior counsel and discussions;

and we appeal to the bishop to provide leadership in implementing processes that will actively involve the Clergy in the review of past decisions that appear to stray from the Charter Purposes and meaningfully include the Clergy in the development of future plans.
