The General Assembly Way Forward Commission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has unanimously adopted an “affirmation” outlining the approach and values of the commission as it engages with the church in its continuing discernment to study and identify a vision for the structure and function of the General Assembly agencies. The text of the affirmation can be found below, and also online. “This is a time for radical improvement, collaborative creativity, and dramatic innovation,” the commission said. “We firmly believe that the values reflected in this affirmation might well apply to all national agencies and staff and recommend consideration for their adoption and application.” The Way Forward Commission’s scheduled future meetings are: May 15–17 at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago; September 17–19 at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Kentucky; and January 17–19, 2018, at First Presbyterian Church in Seattle. The commission also plans to hold conference call meetings April 18, August 9, October 24, and November 29.
