I regret to inform you that my presbytery did not approve the motion I put together. The vote failed, 5 for and 8 against. This means that the letter rebuking the Ohio Senate for their delay on the Heartbeat Bill will not be sent. Three of us had our votes in the affirmative recorded in the minutes--an oddity as it is dissenting votes that are normally recorded. The three of us wished that there be an official record of our attempt to save the 30,000 lives that are lost each year.
In other news, the presbytery discussed whether or not it was permissible to practice intinction (dipping the bread in the wine at the Lord's Supper) for nearly two hours.
