What do you think? Not just about anything but about the proposed amendments to our church Constitution? We get to decide our polity—our “policy,” and our decisions change the future of our church.

Important stuff!

  1. Below you’ll find a link to the proposed amendments with some comments concerning each one.  
  2. Immediately following each proposed amendment you’ll find the analysis of the amendment by the Association of Stated Clerks (ASC) and following that some of the comments gleaned from the Open Space sessions on this issue at the two previous Presbytery meetings.

We hope you’ll add your own thoughts!

About Rev. Michael Burkley

Michael has been a pastor for over 30 years (unbelievably to him) and for over 11 of those years he has had the privilege of serving in Albany Presbytery as the pastor of the Rockwell Falls Presbyterian Church. He is currently serving as the Albany Presbytery Vice Moderator and is very glad to be serving God here with us.

The purpose of the Albany Presbytery Blog is to share information, tell stories, and promote the mission and ministry of the presbytery, synod and beyond. While the breadth of this medium is intentionally broad, it is not a platform for opinion pieces related to business coming before the presbytery unless designed as part of an initiative to provide a diversity of viewpoints at the direction of the presbytery. Exceptions to this policy may be brought to the presbytery officers who will determine appropriateness of submissions.
