It is worth noting that the GC Yearbook (never a best seller) officially states:
“The Yearbook does not define church structure or describe legal relationships among church entities or any of the listed organizations, most of which are separate legal entities. The Yearbook is intended primarily to identify the many and varied organizations, other than local churches/congregations, through which the Church advances its mission. "
- Kudos to the Pacific Union President’s Council for this meaningful gesture. It sends a clear message of understanding and support for gender equality. This Yearbook is not a best seller anywhere, I’ve been told that it is heavily subsidized so as to be able to publish it.
- Plan ahead for Step #2, the next demonstration of solidarity with gender equality issue.
- Respond carefully, don’t just react when there is an official action or response to this action.
- Inform PUC constituency (as statement states), and other interested impacted parties why the SDA Yearbook is “thinner” this year.
Besides being a useful paperweight in my library office, the SDA Yearbook is NOT the Book Of Life!
