Bishop Dyck new ruling on question of law

Categories: Annual Conference 2016,Bishop,News,ordained ministry

UMEpiscopalShieldBishop Sally Dyck has issued a new ruling on a Question of Law first requested following the 2016 Clergy Session at the Northern Illinois Annual Conference regarding a statement by the Board of Ordained Ministry on giving equal consideration and protection to LGBTQ candidates.

Bishop Dyck had ruled that the initial Question of Law was “moot and hypothetical” but the Judicial Council disagreed at its October meeting and remanded a ruling because “a motion defeated by vote of the clergy executive session does not render a subsequent request for Decision of Law improper for ruling by a bishop.”
