The Session met on September 26 in its first meeting since the summer hiatus. A number of items were passed including renewing annual grants to three Presbytery partners, and giving support to Ruth Brown, the PCUSA Mission Co-worker who will be working in Zimbabwe. The session also pledged support for a seminary student for four years at Justin Mwale Seminary in Malawi. Richard Frey announced that he will retire on May 31, 2018. The Session also spent a half hour discussing an article “Choosing Church” which looks closely at what people who get a lot out of church actually get, and thus what makes for a healthy church. The Session recommends it to any member who might also be interested. It is available at https://www.cardus.ca/comment/article/5114/choosing-church/.
