Singing interrupts morning session
Singing interrupted the resumption of the General Conference on Thursday morning. Following the rejection of a compromise proposal to acknowledge that the Church is divided in it’s mind on homosexuality and a proposed amendment to paragraph 161.F of the Book of Discipline, supporters of a more inclusive stance remained on the floor of the assembly. They asked the question, in song, “What does the Lord require of you?”
Bishop Mike Coyner, presiding officer for the second half of the morning, closed the session early because of the continuing witness.
