Synod Ede of the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands continues later this week. Unlike Canadian Reformed synods (which meet through two to three weeks straight), most of the sessions of Dutch synods are held on weekends. The next sessions are scheduled for this coming Friday and Saturday. According to the schedule, on Friday there will be extensive discussions about the letters from concerned foreign sister churches. On Saturday, the agenda is completely devoted to discussing the report on women in office. Let’s continue to remember our Dutch brothers and sisters in prayer, urgently praying for the delegates at the Synod to do the right thing and turn their churches away from this path of apostasy. This could very well be a turning point for them — let’s pray that it would be a turn in the right direction.
