LEARNING OPPORTUNITY: Voting on Book of Order Amendments

This past summer, commissioners to the 222nd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) approved proposing 16 amendments to the Book of Order.  They address everything from changing the just-recently-changed references to "teaching elder" back to "Minister of Word and Sacrament," to a completely revised "Directory for Worship" section of the Book of Order.

Blackhawk Presbytery voted on these amendments, approving all sixteen. Here is the link to the amendments and to a one page summary (by Steve Plank of Cayuga-Syracuse Presbytery).
