I'm very surprised an exit provision was Constitional

The basic building block is the annual conference. Can GC legislate to take away an asset of the annual conference? I would have thought that wouldn't be allowed.

exit only

This is a good article, realistic in appraisal. I personally hope that the GC19 affirms some sort of exit plan that combines Wesleyan theological integrity with common sense and minimal unintended consequences, some of which David identifies. I am concerned that if the GC only passes this, it will be content to 'shooting the wolf nearest the sled" and calling it a day, while the more meaty (gristle?) issues are rolled to the GC2020 cage match, goops, I mean General Conference.

Notable Quotes   


     Bishop Robert T. Hoshibata preaches on the healing power of love at the April 26 evening service at the 2012 General Conference."To be God’s people is to be reminded that God is the Creator of each of us. We are all part of the human family. And in our human relationships we come face-to-face with a wide and wonderfully diverse family of individuals each unique but each beloved by God. Although we do not always agree, I believe it is important for us to know that we hold more in common with one another than any differences that keep us from caring for one another."

– Bishop Bob Hoshibata, God’s People Journeying Together, Desert Southwest Annual Conference website.
