Northern German Union Votes for Women's Ordination
In a statement to the General Conference Executive Committee on April 6, 2010, then church President Jan Paulsen told the delegates that after surveying the presidents of the world church divisions on the topic of women's ordination, the issue received a negative vote. Therefore, he stated, there is no basis to bring a statement on the issue to a vote at the 2010 General Conference session in Atlanta.
Since that time two North American conferences, Columbia Union, and Potomac Conference recently voted to transcend the decision of the worldwide church and move towards allowing the ordination of women. Those who understand the Divine Pattern and channel of blessing as it relates to headship and submission will understand the danger of what these divisions have done. Now the Northern German Union has decided to stage a little "civil disobedience" of their own and voted to move forward with women's ordination. Dennis Meier, pastor of the Grindelberg church in Hamburg, Germany posted the following report for Spectrum Online.
Here's a report of actions taken in the North American Division:
