We are one in Christ. As the body of Christ, we are free to live out our connectedness with each other. Promises are kept when vision is communicated in word and deed, and members are captured by it. For this to happen, we need the leadership of all who have been given responsibility and authority: members of congregations and their pastors; boards and staff of institutions and agencies of the church; synodical bishops; and the bishop of this church…
Because of sin and indifference, intentional measures are necessary for vision to become reality. We expect our leadership to clarify why measures were taken, and to help members deal with the implications of such measures.
