가나안 장로교회 관련…PCUSA 대회 결정

글렌뷰의 가나안 장로교회에 대해 미국장로교(PCUSA) 대회(SYNOD OF LINCOLN TRAILS ADMINISTRATIVE COMMISSION)가 8일 교회 ‘분리(schism)’를 발표했다.

대회가 그동안 중요 사안에 대해 한국어로 발표하던 관례와 달리 이번 발표는 영어로 발표함에 따라 불필요한 오해를 방지하기 위해 원문 발표문을 싣는다.

Schism in Canaan Presbyterian Church, Glenview, Illinois Chicago. The Synod of Lincoln Trails Administrative Commission(SAC) for Midwest Hanmi Presbytery has declared Canaan Presbyterian Church of Glenview, IL to be in schism. The declaration, announced September 8, includes plans for chartering two new churches and dividing Canaan properties between them.

The terms include the chartering of two new churches within the PC(USA). One, tentatively identified as Covenant Canaan Presbyterian Church, will be chartered within the Midwest Hanmi Presbytery. It will assume control of properties in the 1200 block of Greenwood Avenue in Glenview, as well as farm and retreat center properties in Wisconsin.

The second congregation, tentatively identified as Promise Canaan Presbyterian Church, will be chartered within the Presbytery of Chicago if the Presbytery agrees. It will assume control of properties in the 1300 and 1400 blocks of Greenwood Avenue. The Reverends Yong Sam Rhee and Leo Rhee may continue serving the Promise Canaan Presbyterian Church upon its chartering and movement of their pastoral memberships to the Presbytery of Chicago.

The plan also includes directions for resolving disciplinary, legal, and liability issues surrounding these entities.

The respective congregations are directed to vacate the properties controlled by the other congregation by October 1, 2010.
