|Annual Counsel votes to send women's ordination question to GC Session » On Tuesday, October 14, delegates to the GC Annual Council in Silver Spring, Maryland, voted overwhelmingly to ask delegates to next summer's General Conference Session to determine whether it is acceptable for each division to decide for itself whether to ordain women. There was a gracious atmosphere in the room, and delegates voted 243-44 in favor of sending the question to the GC Session.
The question to be posed will be, “After your prayerful study on ordination from the Bible, the writings of Ellen G. White, and the reports of the study commissions, and, after your careful consideration of what is best for the church and the fulfillment of its mission, is it acceptable for division executive committees, as they may deem it appropriate in their territories, to make provision for the ordination of women to the gospel ministry? Yes or No.”
