General Assembly is about community. Connecting with old friends and new is so much more than a cliché.
It was an itchy assembly. Lots of scratching; little relief. One commissioner said it was “sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Another called it “confusing.” Several wondered if anything had “actually happened.” The most common word used was “proxy.”
The 2016 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada met at York University, Toronto, from June 3-6. Commissioners reviewed more than 400 pages of reports and considered all kinds of recommendations. In case you don’t feel like wading through the reports to find all those recommendations, we’ve compiled them here as adopted by the church’s highest court.
