Gracious exits

This letter convinced me we need gracious exits. We can't take on gay affirmation and focus on removing all the references to god as a male. Our horse isn't that good.

Any church that wants to leave be allowed to do so, as long as they transfer ownership of the land to their annual conference with a commitment to remain a Christian church. Rent for the land will be $0, but church is responsible for all associated expenses. The churches leaving will own the buildings. If in the future, the church decides to stop being a church, then conference can take over the use of the land.
