Another Busy Day

Today we passed a great deal of legislation:

1. A major initiative to put mission as our main priority.

2. A much slimmer budget which will mean that some programs are trimmed, some eliminated, many having to learn different ways in which to operate, and the loss of some jobs. Hard work, but really forward looking stuff.

3. Lots of changes in rules of order.

4. Called on our government to do something so that everyone has health insurance.

5. Called for more education for congregations regarding domestic violence

We will summarize and post a lot of this information in a future blog.

Tomorrow is the last legislative day and we will see a flurry of resolutions. Will try to bring you up to date on that before we leave on Saturday.

Continue your prayers for us, please.
