Resolution 14.3.03a receives approval from LCC congregations

November 12, 2014 No Comment

canluthCANADA – The congregations of Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC) have voted to allow official notices to be published in either the print or online editions of The Canadian Lutheran. Previously, LCC’s constitution required all such notices to be published in the print version of the magazine.

This summer, Lutheran Church–Canada’s National Convention adopted Resolution 14.3.03a “To Amend the LCC Constitution To Permit Official Notices To Be Published in Electronic and Print Editions of The Canadian Lutheran.” A similar resolution (14.3.02b) saw LCC’s bylaws amended to the same effect. But because Resolution 14.3.03a called for a constitutional amendment, it required a vote by congregations to pass.

Congregations were contacted in September and encouraged to vote on the matter. The deadline for congregational responses was November 9, 2014.

Rev. Paul Schallhorn, Secretary of LCC’s Board of Directors, announces that the resolution received the necessary votes to pass. 145 votes were cast, with 145 in favour, one not in favour, and zero abstentions.
