Leaders Respond to the GC/NAD Conflict Over Equality for Adventist Women

Martin Weber, D.Min. — Director of Communication, Mid-America Union Conference
 
Elder Dan Jackson has brought an unprecedented quality of leadership to North America, in my opinion: visionary, inspiring, courageous and compassionate. Thus I am saddened by his apology that accompanied the reversal of Policy E-60 related to women in leadership. To quote: “. . . We were doing so under the assumption that the North American Division had a constituency separate and distinct from the General Conference. Unfortunately, we were wrong and we sincerely apologize.”
