Congratulations to our very own Jeff Schwarz, elected to the Commission on Theology and Church Relations by the Synod today. Over all, the elections are taking a decided turn away from the direction of the previous couple conventions. We had a real fiasco when a ballot came up with three candidates receiving more than 50 percent of the vote (but we had voted for two); they finally sorted it out. Our own Ralph Laufer read to the convention the bylaw that actually settled the dispute, but it took them a while to agree with it. Wonderful moment today was the delegation from Haiti greeting us through their bishop and our pledge to continue the work there.
