A Tale of Three Presbyteries

UPDATE! 10:08 pm

I thought they weren't going to vote, but New Brunswick voted and with flair, 88-10-3 in favor of Amendment A. So three YES votes today!!

Score? 65-44. Or maybe 65-43. Little unclear on that.

Here is the updated post!

Three presbyteries voted today.
Three presbyteries voted YES.

Transylvania a solid YES, 78-48.
Eastminster a nail-biter, YES 46-45.
New Brunswick a strong YES, 88-10-3.

Eastminster skidded in the wrong direction. That should have been an easy win as last time it had voted in favor of equality 60-39. This is a good reminder that every vote counts and that no presbytery can be taken for granted. We were lucky.

But a YES is a YES!

The score is 65-44.


Twenty-two more YESes to get to 87.

Thanks to all who worked hard in Transylvania, Eastminster and New Brunswick!

A good day!
