Task Force on Disciplinary Policies

Task Force on Disciplinary Policies (Title IV Revisions)
Blue Book Pages 766-795

A new set of disciplinary canons are being proposed this year.

Four distinct elements need to be included in any process of discipline:
(1) safety for all persons involved in discipline (sanctuary)
(2) truth-telling, leading to the elimination of toxic secrecy and shame;
(3) healing, with its verbal roots in “salve”, the same root as for “salvation”; and
(4) reconciliation, to free and strengthen the church in its true mission to the world.

To see the details of the canonical changes, simply click on the title of this blog post and you will be directed to the Blue Book source.
