To follow-up on my report from day 2, the GA this afternoon passed the following resolution regarding the issue of women teaching elders:

That the General Assembly approve the creation of an interim committee to explore ways to provide a pathway to unity while protecting freedom of conscience among those pastors and churches with conflicting positions on women Teaching Elders in the presbyteries of the EPC. This committee will be appointed by the Moderator, will include two representatives from each presbytery and include all positions held within the EPC on women Teaching Elders. The committee will report to the 30th General Assembly in 2010.

The reference to “each presbytery” will include the New Wineskins Transitional Presbytery.
