The Moving Target: The North Dakota and Southern Illinois Blue Ribbon Presentations Transcribed
We all owe a debt of gratitude to Randy Bosch, who has prepared a current text version of the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Synod Structure and Governance restructuring PowerPoint presentation given at the Southern Illinois District Convention, and compares it with the previous presentation at the North Dakota District Convention. Deletions are struck out, and additions are noted in red, for comparison purposes. The actual slide presentations, old and new, are available here and here, respectively.
His efforts alleviate a real bottleneck, since the Synod apparently sees no value in providing useful materials with which to study their proposals. They have made no documents available at the conventions or on line. This is more botched administration or a matter of keeping information from the synod or both. Please pass this on and make it as widely available as possible, so that we can all get a good look and formulate appropriate responses at our district conventions.

Provide at least your first name. Please try to come up with a unique name; if you have a common name add something to it so you aren't confused with another user. We have several "john"'s already for example. If you have a good reason to use a fake name, please do so but realize that the administrators of the site expect a valid email address and also reserve the right to ask you for your name privately at any time.
If you post as more than one person from the same IP address, we’ll block that address.
Do not engage in ad hominem arguments. We will delete such comments, and will not be obligated to respond to any complaints (public or private ones) about deleting your comments.
