The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Denmark will meet today in Nærum for its tri-annual, 5-day business session.
What to expect? Much is at stake, and as readers of this blog may know, discussions have been flying high the last few months about the future of the church. I have no idea what will be the outcome this weekend. Things could “go ugly”, splitting the church in two (or more). Fears could be put to shame, with a large majority stating the will to move forward in unity. Or nothing much could happen, sending us into another 5 years of insecurity. The last option is, unfortunately, not unlikely.
What is certain is that a new union president will be elected. But there are no obvious candidates. And it is not exactly a desirable position at the moment.
I am prepared to be a delegate for Århus Café Church. Due mostly to technicalities out of our control, we have no regular delegates, but must rely on the goodwill of the session. I know that people will suggest granting us and Haslev Frikirke delegate status, and I am hoping for the best. If this is not granted, it does not bode well for the mood of the session.
I will try to update as much as I can during the session. When this blog began almost two years ago, I was at the GC session in St. Louis; this gave me the incentive to share my thoughts with the world. Now it’s time again, on a more local scale, but in many ways more interesting and nerve-wrecking.
