Please be aware that the General Assembly package contains 3 policies relating to financial matters.
These 3 policies should not be passed or adopted for the following reasons:
First, they attempt to implement the two resolutions, defeated soundly by a 3-to-2 decision of the Special General Assembly in November 2011, while some of us were left out waiting in the cold. The Metropolitan still is trying to make an end-run around the Parish Assembly.
Second, there are no safeguards for the community; and,
Third, the “policies” have not been thoroughly vetted by our community. The “policies” need to be discussed, by experts from our community, and then placed before the general assembly for consideration.
Anything and everything that diminishes the right of the General Assembly to be in total and complete charge of our financial health, should not be passed.
Any other reason given by the proponents for the passage of the policies is bogus; they only want to do the bidding of the Denver Metropolitan.
Let’s us be ever so vigilant to safeguard our community. Let us NOT be intimidated; we must not succumb to anyone’s threats.
Please come and attend the General Assembly next Sunday. Please fill out and return your stewardship pledge.
