Decides to back "ethically responsible business" in Holy Land
Sep 19, 2006
The United Church of Canada has dropped a proposal to sell off stock in companies that contribute to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and has decided to back “ethically responsible business” in the Holy Land.
The Christian Reformed Church will continue to be governed by men only—for now. At its annual policymaking meeting, held in Palos Heights, Illinois, the all-male CRC Synod on June 15 backed away from a proposal to allow female delegates. When a majority of regional governing groups allows female ministers, then allowing women delegates should be considered, delegates decided.
