Legislative Work Continues

On Monday afternoon the General Comference decided not to set term limits for bishops elected in the US. Bishops, once elected, serve until they retire (As long as they stay in good standing). There was an attempt to reduce the members on the General Conference Commission (plans the Gen Conf). It was a cost saving measure. The attempt failed. The body also voted on what languages the Advanced Daily Advocate ( petitions sent to General Conf) will be published in. 

At the beginning of the afternoon, we were told that it was the hope that the body would work on 20 petitions today. Well, at 4:35 we have 4 done. Slow going here.
