The following motion was offered and unanimously passed at General Council last week in Victoria. During this crucial time of approaching elections, please read and share with your congregation and friends.
GENERAL COUNCIL MOTION - October 24, 2008 - Victoria, British Columbia - 52nd General Council of the REC
Forasmuch as the Reformed Episcopal Church has affirmed the teaching of God's Word that abortion is the taking of an unborn human life, and inasmuch as we have recognized the duty of all faithful Christians to work to protect the unborn and restrain the sin of abortion on demand, we hereby move that the General Council of the Reformed Episcopal Church direct the clergy and laity of the Reformed Episcopal Church to make a political candidate's position on the Sanctity of Human Life the highest priority in discerning for whom to vote regardless of political party represented or office being sought.
[This motion unanimously passed, enthusiastically and soberly. A season of prayer followed.]
