Presbytery of Tropical Florida Votes on "Gracious Separation" Today

Here is the article from the Sun-Sentinel this morning that reported that today Presbytery would meet to take up the question of 9 of its churches seeking dismissal.

I attended the meeting as an Elder-Commissioner from FPC Miami Springs, a church among the 9 seeking dismissal.  Presbytery voted to dismiss each one, subject "to the way being clear."  There are some tasks that need to be addressed so that the way is clear, but they are reasonable tasks, under the circumstances, and not meant to be insurmountable.  It was a sad day for all.

UPDATE (5/16/12) : Here is the follow-up article in Wednesday's Sun-Sentinel.
