Resolution passed by the Presbytery of New York City

in the regular meeting held May 20, 1997 by a margin of 72 to 12


Whereas a majority of the presbyteries of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) have voted to approve Amendment B (from the 208th General Assembly, 1996) to the Book of Order G-6.0106;

Whereas this approval has given rise to discussion and dialogue within many of the sessions in the Presbytery of New York City; and

Whereas some of the sessions in the Presbytery of New York City have signed covenants of dissent;

Therefore, be it resolved that the Presbytery of New York City:

views positively the discussion and dialogue about Amendment B taking place within the sessions of the presbytery; and

pledges to support and work with those sessions who determine that they, in good conscience, must dissent from Amendment B.
