Various Changes in the NFOG

July 13th, 2011 No comments

I thought I would note some of the changes I’ve run across as we begin operating under the NFOG. I may update this post as I find other items worth mentioning.

  • There’s no longer a requirement for deacons to meet annually with session. (The old G-6.0405.)
  • The category of “inactive member” has been eliminated: G-1.0401. (Amen.)
  • Congregations decide their own rules for the minimum notification time preceding a congregational meeting: G-1.0502.
  • Congregations also set their own quorum to conduct business: G-1.0501.
  • Robert’s Rules is no longer mandated (old G-7.0302c).
  • The composition of the nominating committee is defined by the congregation, except it has to have (in addition to the ex-officio pastor) three active members and at least one currently-serving ruling elder: G-2.0401.
  • After the election of new officers, session examines them, and, if they pass, session decides when they get ordained and/or installed: G-2.0402.
  • Sessions decide their own quorum: G-3.0203.

Fallout from the Early Easter

May 21st, 2008 No comments

The Revised Common Lectionary apparently didn’t realize how early Easter could fall. This week is the 8th Sunday in Ordinary Time. I keep finding resources that assume the 8th Sunday in Ordinary Time must have fallen in February and the first Sunday in May after Pentecost is the 9th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
