Seventh-day Adventists To Decide Whether Women Can Become Clergy?!?!?
Readers, the 60th General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is in session this week. It’s held only every five years and draws nearly 70,000 Adventists from 192 nations. Like every denominational summer meeting, they will have music and sermons and votes on matters from minute to major. This one set for Wednesday is major. It’s also intricately bound up in the way the church is structured. The pending vote on women’s ordination isn’t a decision to ordain women in the worldwide church. Rather, the question that is being voted on is on whether or not the church will allow Divisions to take a pro-women’s ordination stance.
