Resolution 3

Resolution 3: To Facilitate the Election of a Successor to Bishop Rimbo

PDF Version

Whereas, the procedures adopted in 2012 for identifying nominees for the office of bishop were conceived only for elections held within the usual electoral cycle, therefore be it,

Resolved, that in order to facilitate a timely election of a bishop to fill the current vacancy, the 2018 Synod Assembly authorizes the Synod Council to set aside as necessary the procedures adopted in 2012.

Submitted by,
The Rev. Eric Olsen, Good Shepherd, Plainview
The Rev. James Krauser, Grace, North Bellmore


Resolution 3 pertains to the ongoing process begun by the resignation of the bishop. The Committee on Reference and Counsel recommends the assembly consider this resolution as an offering helpful to the discussion and delineation of this process.
