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.
