Thursday, June 1, 2017 Opening Worship – 9:15 a.m. The theme of Opening Worship was “Repent.” Upper New York Area Resident Bishop Mark J. Webb delivered the Message (“Know your Why”), followed by an invitation to receive ashes and Holy Communion. The ashes were used as a sign for the Conference to begin this quadrennium by “trusting that God is enough.” A special offering was received for Mission Central. Bishop Webb concluded the service with a Benediction. Clergy Session – 1 p.m. Matt Stengel and Sue Russell welcomed members to the Clergy Session. They announced the Bishop’s Retreat in October and the Bishop’s Trip to Israel in January 2018. The meeting was called to order with the singing of And Are We Yet Alive. Gail Lewis, Director of Buffalo Course of Study, invited local pastors who completed the five-year course of study to stand and be recognized. She announced that the database needs additional funding. She encouraged gifts be sent to The Upper New York Conference, c/o Course of Study. Gail will match first $500 that is given Buzz Grimm, NYS Council of Churches, was introduced. He noted that Dee Lowman is the representative from The United Methodist Church on the NYS Council of Churches. The Council is looking for chaplains in facilities across the state (prisons, mental health, and juvenile facilities). He provided a handout of openings across the state. An offering was taken to benefit the Clergy Care Fund. Bishop Mark Webb welcomed clergy to the session. He led the body in prayer. Matt Stengel moved the adoption of the Organizational Motion. As specified in the 2016 Book of Discipline ¶602: The clergy membership of a Conference consists of deacons and elders in full connection, provisional members, associate members, affiliate members, and local pastors under full-time and part-time appointment to a pastoral charge.

Clergy session will be held on May 31, 2018, in Syracuse, N.Y. The 2018 Annual Conference session will be held from May 31- June 2, 2018, in Syracuse, N.Y. The clergy session was adjourned. Opening Plenary – 3 p.m. Bishop Mark Webb called to order the eighth session of the Upper New York Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. He welcomed all delegates and visitors and recognized first-time delegates. Seated on stage with Bishop Webb were Conference Lay Leader Susan Hardy; and Conference Secretary the Rev. Jeff Hodge. Secretary Hodge pointed out the bar of the Conference. Bishop Webb explained the process of being recognized and speaking at a microphone. Order of the day: The Reverend Russell Pierce, Executive Director for Communications, The Advance & Fundraising at the General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM), greeted the Conference delegates. Rev. Pierce explained that he spent 12 years in the Binghamton area where he was formed and shaped as a disciple at the Central United Methodist Church in Endicott. He was ordained an elder in Wyoming Conference in 2005. Rev. Pierce is representing 37 directors, 160 staff, and 350 missionaries around the world. After showing a video to the Conference, Rev. Pierce thanked UNY for giving $317,805 to The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR); $390,449 in other Advance gifts; and $78,761 in Advance support to missionaries. He also announced that UNY supported 32 missionaries, which is more than any other Conference in the Northeastern Jurisdiction. Bishop Webb received an award on behalf of UNY for its faithful partnership with GBGM. Organizational Motion The Conference Secretary moved adoption of the Organizational Motion as it is printed in the copy provided in the packets delegates received. Ian Uriolla, laity, moved to amend rule #10: Securing the Floor, replacing the printed, proposed rule with the following: Securing the floor: Conference members wishing to speak to the Conference shall raise their colored placard at their seat and wait to be recognized by the presider. When recognized, they shall – as they are able – move to the nearest microphone and for monitoring purposes shall state their names, gender identity, racial ethnic identity and their church (laity) or appointment (clergy). The member shall provide this information every time they wish to secure the floor and speak to the Conference, and the presider shall not grant the member permission to speak until they provide the aforementioned information. There was a second to the motion. There was much discussion about the proposed amendment, with three speaking for, and three against. Those in favor felt that the change was necessary to help with the monitoring provided by the Commission on the Status and Role of Women (COSROW) and the Commission on Religion and Race (CORR). Those speaking against found it either unnecessary or an intrusion of privacy. The question was called. The call of the question was supported. The amendment failed.

Jeff Childs, clergy, pointed out the need for correction of a name under rule #15. Vicki Putney should be changed to Vicki Swanson. Pat Bachman, laity, moved to amend rule #3 changing the wording from “At any time during the proceedings the bishop may call for a moment of discernment and prayer before a vote is taken” to “During the proceedings, the bishop shall call for a moment of discernment and prayer before a vote is taken.” There was a second to the motion. There was no discussion. The vote appeared too close to determine an outcome. There was a need to divide the house. The tellers did a hand count. The result was Yes-415, No-566. The amendment failed. The question was called. The call of the question was supported. Bishop Webb prayed before the vote. The Organization Motion was adopted. Agenda The Rev. Bill Gottschalk-Fielding, Director of Connectional ministries and Executive Assistant to the Bishop, moved the adoption of the agenda as printed in Volume I of the Conference Journal. Ben Lalka, clergy, moved that resolutions UNYAC2017.9 and UNYAC2017.12 be made the order of the day at 3 p.m. Friday. Bishop Webb explained that resolution UNYAC2017.9 had been withdrawn. Dion Marquart, laity, offered a substitute motion to “Make Resolution UNYAC2017.12 the Order of the Day at 3 p.m. Friday.” There was a second to the motion. There was discussion both for and against about the need to adopt this motion. The substitute motion failed. Ben Lalka, clergy, moved to “Make resolution UNYAC2017.12 when we come to the resolutions in the time of the planned agenda.” There was a second to the motion. Motion supported. The amended agenda was adopted. Consent Calendar The Rev. Gottschalk-Fielding presented the Consent Calendar as printed in the packet and moved its adoption. Nate Lange, clergy, moved that the budget be added to the consent calendar. The addition of the budget to the calendar was supported. Bishop Webb said that moving the budget to the Consent Calendar may be out of order, but said he would like the decision to stand while he does research on its legality. He will report a decision at morning plenary on Friday. Brett Johnson made a motion to table the issue until the bishop makes a final ruling. This was not supported. The amended Consent Calendar was adopted. Monitoring Report Tom Blake, laity, representing the Commission on the Status and Role of Women (COSROW) and Blenda Smith, laity, representing the Committee on Religion and Race (CORR), explained the daily monitoring

Eighth Session of the Upper New York Annual Conference Friday, June 2, 2017 Morning Study – 8:15 a.m. Study Leader the Rev. Kenda Creasy Dean, an ordained United Methodist elder in the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference, and Professor of Youth, Church, and Culture at Princeton Theological Seminary, spoke on the topic: “Love Made Me an Inventor: Why an Entrepreneurial Church Matters to Young People.” Morning Plenary – 9:30 a.m. Bishop Webb called the morning plenary to order. He recognized the communications team and introduced the Daily Update video, featuring Ian Urriola, laity, and Krystal Cole, laity. Monitoring Report Tom Blake, laity, representing the Commission on the Status and Role of Women (COSROW) and Blenda Smith, laity, representing the Committee on Religion and Race (CORR), reminded conference attendees of the breakdown of Conference attendance: 43% male, 57% female; and 90% of the registrants are Caucasian. On Thursday, 61% of the speakers were male; 38% of the speakers from the floor were male clergy. A monitoring report will also be provided on Saturday. Review of Consent Calendar Ruling Bishop Webb reported that, after consulting with Conference Chancellor Scott DelConte and several Bishops, he determined that placing the budget on the Consent Calendar is in order. By placing the budget on the Consent Calendar, the Conference took action of its entire 2018 budget. The bishop noted that he is making a parliamentary ruling and not a rule of law. Beckie Sweet, clergy, asked if this decision precludes the body from passing any resolutions that have financial implications. Bishop Webb replied that in those cases, the budget would have to be reconsidered. A motion was made to reconsider the Consent Calendar. There was a second to the motion. There was discussion for and against. It was noted that Roberts Rules of Order only allows a question to be reconsidered once. The question was called. The call of the question was supported. The motion to reconsider was not supported. Trustees Pastor Rich Barling, chair of the Board of Trustees, recognized the other board members, and introduced a video of the new Conference Center, which came in $12,963 under budget. Pastor Jack Keating, secretary of the Board of Trustees, spoke of the board’s property management efforts. Keating reported that the Trustees had oversight of ten current district parsonages and one episcopal residence. The Conference acquired two parsonages in 2016 and anticipates two more in 2017 to

38


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

complete the project of providing district parsonages in each of the districts. Trustees currently oversee 26 properties identified as discontinued, closed or abandoned properties (churches, cemeteries, land-only, some legacy properties). Each one of the properties has two assigned Trustees providing oversight for the properties. In 2016, the board sold eight closed churches, resulting in net proceeds of $385,000. A small portion is retained by trustees, with the balance going to new beginnings fund or to the camp and retreat ministries. Kathy King Griswold, treasurer of the Board of Trustees, provided financial highlights for 2016. She reported that assets declined by some 14% or $1.3 million in 2016 compared to 2015. K. King-Griswold noted that the Conference previously had a granted loan program, which was put on hold in October 2016. The Trustees continue to review outstanding loan balances. The current estimated guaranteed loan balance is $1,050,000. The program will remain paused until the balance is paid down. A new guaranteed draft loan policy for emergency situations is being drafted. Peter Abdella, vice president of the Board of Trustees, provided an update on the insurance program renewal. For 2017, the Trustees renewed coverage through Church Mutual Insurance. This has occurred with no increases for 2017 and better coverage. It will be reassessed this year. Camp Findley Rev. Barling explained the progress on determining the future of Camp Findley. At last year’s Annual Conference session, a resolution was passed, which authorized the Board of Trustees to determine the future of Camp Findley and directed the board to meet with the Committee on Camp & Retreat Ministries, the staff, and other interested UM congregations in the Cornerstone District. The resolution also stated that if a mutually acceptable alternative had not been reached by Sept. 30, 2016, the Trustees were authorized to sell the property. Over the year, the Trustees have met with those groups, and had begun conversations with the “Findley Lake Group” on an agreement to delegate stewardship, not ownership, to that group. Rev. Barling explained that, in late February 2017, it was made clear that the Findley Lake Group needed to show financial viability in response to known capital needs of the camp. The only information received has been verbal to date, he reported. Discontinuance of local churches The following churches were discontinued; Adirondack District – Embury UMC, 246 years; Mountain View District – Hicks UMC, 107 years; Mohawk District – Lassellsville UMC, 178 years; Albany District – Rensselaer: First UMC, 186 years; Crossroads District- Syracuse: James Street UMC; Binghamton District – Johnson City: Lao Good News UMC. There was one Church Abandonment: Crossroads District – South Scriba UMC. Chair Barling presented the full Trustees Report for adoption. Cathy Hall-Stengel, clergy, asked about designated funds that were given to UNY from its predecessor conferences: “When the new Conference was developed, funds were transferred from various funds. Where is the rest of the money and when will it be used in the way it was given?” Kevin Domanico, Conference Treasurer explained that it has been a long, detailed process identifying

39


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

those funds. Bishop Webb stepped away from his role as presider to address the issue. He explained that a year and a half ago, he convened all leaders of the administrative teams and looked at their “three top dilemmas”. One of those was addressing the previous assets of predecessor conferences. He noted that the team of administrative leaders is working very hard to get this completed. Camp Findley Proposal Joseph Pascoe, clergy, made a motion that the Upper New York Annual Conference transfer Findley camp property to the Findley Lake UMC for $1. There were several questions about both the legality and logistics of transferring a property from the Annual Conference to a local church. Conference Chancellor Scott DelConte noted several issues with the motion, including the need for both a grantor and grantee to consent to the sale. This motion would only represent the action of the grantor. DelConte also explained that for a local church to purchase or receive an asset, it is required to provide adequate notice to the local congregation, and to hold a charge conference. The Annual Conference also does not have constitutional authority to require the trustees to take action; or authority to require the church to accept the property. Bishop Webb ruled the motion out of order. The Trustees Report was adopted. Election of Trustees Jenna Amberge, chair of Lay Leadership/Nominations, announced the slate of trustees to be elected. There are four openings. The following are on the ballot: x x

2018: Joyce Miller 2021: Richard Barling, Barbara Brewer, Robert Dietrich

There was a prayer before the vote by paper ballot was taken. Ballots were collected. Dianne Roe led the lunch time prayer. Afternoon Study – 1:30 p.m. Study Leader Rev. Kenda Creasy Dean, an ordained United Methodist elder in the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference, and Professor of Youth, Church, and Culture at Princeton Theological Seminary, offered an afternoon session on the topic: “Doing a New Thing: The Church Has No Excuses.” Afternoon Plenary – 2:15 p.m. Black College Fund Ambassador The Rev. Dee Finch, convener of the College Ministry Team, introduced James I. Cogman, a Certified Lay Servant in the Baltimore-Washington Conference of The United Methodist Church, and is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Claflin University in Orangeburg, S.C., where he received dual degrees: one in politics and justice studies and the other in psychology. In 2016, he received a full scholarship to pursue his Master of Divinity degree at Yale University.

James began with the singing of This Little Light of Mine and brought greetings from Dr. Cynthia Bond Hopson, Assistant General Secretary of the Black College Fund and Ethnic Concerns at GBHEM. He talked about the impact of the fund and said that 15,999 students are attending these institutions. James also thanked UNYAC for giving 100% of its apportionments to the Black College Fund. Bishop Webb greeted James and said that “Ministry Shares have legs, hands, heart, and if I can say, a snazzy tie.” Presentation from GCF&A Rick King, Chief Financial Officer for the General Council of Finance & Administration, thanked the UNYAC for its faithful giving to The UMC connection worldwide; and congratulated the Conference for achieving its goal to pay 100% to all general funds. In 2013, the Conference paid 56.7% of its General Church apportionments. Committee on Nominations Report Jenna Amberge, laity, chair of the Conference Committee on Nominations, introduced and thanked her team before presenting the team’s report. She explained that laity is identified with an “L” and clergy with a “C.” A list of nominations was included in delegates’ packets. Nominations were taken from the floor, as well as in writing. Teams will review each nomination in concert with the Committee on Nominations. Jenna Amberge reported that all nominees for trustees were elected during the morning session. Their election is confirmed and certified. After reviewing the nominations and taking names from the floor, J. Amberge moved the adoption of the report. It was supported. Commission on A Way Forward Dr. Scott Johnson, clergy, a member of the General Conference Commission on a Way Forward presented an update on the commission’s work. After a video describing the commission’s work, Johnson spoke of the honor and the humbling experiencing of serving in this capacity. The Council of Bishops authorized the formation of the Commission on a Way Forward. He explained that the task is clear: At the request of General Conference, the Council of Bishops created this commission to design a way to create a way forward for The Church that maximizes the presence of United Methodist witness in as many places as possible; that allows for as much contextual differentiation as possible; and that balances to different theological understanding of human sexuality with a desire. Johnson said that the expectation is that the commission will make recommendations that will move the General Church beyond its current state into a new, just, and healthy way of being The Church in the world. The commission has brought together 32 people across global connection, diverse in perspectives, cultures, theology, and backgrounds. They have devoted themselves to Bible study and prayer, and have studied a wide range of materials. The commission will be working toward recommendations to be considered at a special called session in 2019. There will be District Days scheduled in every district starting in September and ending in March. A part of those days will be dedicated to working with the Human Sexuality Task Force to find a way for us to engage in conversations in each district.

Committee on Petitions and Resolutions Hudda Aswad, laity, chair of the Committee on Petitions and Resolutions, introduced and thanked the team for its work and explained the Petition and Resolution process.

Stephen Cady, clergy, spoke to the resolution, explaining that, while the UMBOD allows for the sitting delegation to attend special called sessions, this called special session will occur nearly four years after the initial election, during which three new classes of eligible and voting clergy will have become members; and new laity will have joined the AC. Those persons should be allowed to elect a new slate. Vicki Swanson estimated that, if an extra day was needed, it would cost an additional $120,080. It was also noted that, if voting machines needed to be rented for a special session, the cost would be $25,500. There was much discussion, with several speaking for and against the resolution.

The call of the question was supported. Heidi Chamberlain, clergy, prayed before the vote. The vote was too close to call. The vote was too close to count.

In the 2012 Book of Discipline, Division One, add a new paragraph between current ¶¶ 5 and 6: As the Holy Scripture reveals, both men and women are made in the image of God and, therefore, men and women are of equal value in the eyes of God. The United Methodist Church recognizes it is contrary to Scripture and to logic to say that God is male or female, as maleness and femaleness are characteristics of human bodies and cultures, not characteristics of the divine. The United Methodist Church acknowledges the long history of discrimination against women and girls. The United Methodist Church shall confront and seek to eliminate discrimination against women and girls, whether in organizations or in individuals, in every facet of its life and in society at large. The United Methodist Church shall work collaboratively with others to address concerns that threaten the cause of women’s and girl's equality and well-being.

UNY2017.SHRec-1 – Avoid Purchase of Hewlett Packard Products Whereas, Palestinians are forced to use Israeli-controlled checkpoints to move within the West Bank, which is part of their own designated homeland; and Whereas, a biometric system of scanning and ID cards are central to Israel’s system of control of the West Bank; and Whereas, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), one of the family of Hewlett Packard companies (HP), is responsible for developing, integrating, and maintaining the biometric system used by the Israeli military to control movement; and Whereas, HPE profits from developing systems to racially profile and control the movement of Palestinians, and as such is complicit in a breach of Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; and Whereas, HP operates a development center in Beithar Illit, an illegal Israeli-only settlement city in

58


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

the occupied West Bank built on land confiscated from the Palestinian villages of Wadi Foquin, Nahhalin, and Husan, and, as an employer in the settlement, HP profits from stolen land and contributes to the tax base and job opportunities that strengthen the settlement, (http://investigate.afsc.org/company/hp-inc-and-hewlett-packard-enterprise); and Whereas, HP provides services and technologies to two of the other biggest Israeli-only, illegal West Bank settlements Modi'in Ilit and Ariel, and participated in the "Smart City" project in Ariel, providing a storage system for the settlement's municipality, (http://www.whoprofits.org/company/hewlett-packard-hp); and Whereas, the Hewlett Packard Company recently split into two companies, HP Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), with more spin-offs projected, and the various HP companies share certain logistical infrastructure, governance, supply chains, and technologies with one another, and they all draw on the HP brand’s long history of close connections with the Israeli military and occupation (http://uscpr.org/hp2016woa_pr/); and Whereas, The United Methodist Church has specifically and repeatedly condemned both the military occupation and the construction of Israeli-only settlements in the West Bank (2016 United Methodist Book of Resolutions #6111, p. 602-606); and Whereas, there has been no meaningful progress with HP and no indication of any willingness to change their involvement in the occupation of Palestinian territories (https://www.kairosresponse.org/corporate_engagement_04-11.html); and Whereas, more than 3,000 Palestinian Christians have implored Christians everywhere to put actions behind their words to end Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land ((http://www.kairospalestine.ps/index.php/about-us/kairos-palestine-document); and Whereas, The United Methodist Church asks all companies that profit from and/or support settlements through their business activities to examine these activities and stop any business transactions that contribute to violations of international law, promote systemic discrimination, or otherwise support ongoing military occupation (2016 United Methodist Book of Resolutions #6111, p. 605); and Whereas, nonviolent tools for education and ethical consumption are central to a living expression of discipleship, with Methodists participating in boycotts as an effective moral economic tool long used by people of conscience including such boycotts as Taco Bell and Mt. Olive Pickle Company, Inc. to support farm workers, Nestle to challenge marketing of infant formula, and USA Today to support newspaper workers in Detroit; and Whereas, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the United Church of Christ, Quaker Friends Fiduciary, the Alliance of Baptists, and Unitarian Universalists have divested from HP (http://www.fosna.org/free-your-church-hp); and Whereas, in 2015 the Upper New York Annual Conference approved a measure calling for divestment from HP; and Whereas, an international and interfaith coalition of organizations and groups have come together

59


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

to challenge HP's complicity in human rights violations in the occupied Palestinian territories and to ask the company to withdraw from such contracts and stop profiting from the Israeli occupation, (https://www.afsc.org/resource/campaign-boycott-hp). Therefore be it resolved that the Upper New York Annual Conference calls on all Conference boards, agencies, offices, local congregations, campus ministries, and individual United Methodists to refrain from purchasing HP products until this family of companies ends its involvement with the Israeli occupation. Be it further resolved that the Upper New York Annual Conference Task Force on Peace with Justice in Palestine/Israel follow up on this resolution by reporting back to 2018 Upper New York Annual Conference the status of the boycott and when it might be lifted. UNY2017.SHRec-2 – Protecting the Right to Peacefully Address Injustice through Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions Whereas, boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) are constitutionally protected forms of free speech and protest that have often been used by people of conscience to effect positive social and political change; and Whereas, a wave of anti-BDS legislation that has been proposed in the U.S. Congress and in state legislatures and public institutions across the United States threatens to penalize the use of these time-honored nonviolent justice-seeking actions; and Whereas, New York state Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed anti-BDS Executive Order 157 in June 2016, blacklisting and threatening companies and institutions supporting BDS; and Whereas, United Methodists and other religious communities have long used the non-violent methods of boycotts, divestment and sanctions to stand in solidarity with oppressed people and to work for justice, and such advocacy measures by the United Methodist Church have proven to be useful tools in helping to bring about a wide range of constructive social change, including the strengthening of labor rights for farm workers in the United States and ending of apartheid in South Africa; and Whereas, in 2005, after studying the success of such efforts, a broad coalition of Palestinian civil society issued a call for a global movement of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) to advance the Palestinians’ long-denied rights to self-determination, freedom, justice, and equality; and Whereas, in 2009, Palestinian Christians echoed the call for boycott and divestment in their landmark document, “Kairos Palestine: A Moment of Truth,” ~ an ecumenical confession of faith and urgent call to action often compared to the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” and other Christian manifestos written in times of crisis ~ that has been signed by thousands of Palestinian Christians and endorsed by the 13 Patriarchs and Heads of Churches in Jerusalem; and

WHEREAS, in recent years, more than a dozen United Methodist Annual Conferences have called for their own conference and/or the denomination to divest from companies that support and profit from the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land;

60


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

Whereas, in 2012, the United Methodist General Conference approved the resolution "Opposition to Israeli Settlements in Palestinian Land," {#6111) which calls on “all nations to prohibit...the import of products made by companies in Israeli settlements on Palestinian land,” i.e. calls for an international boycott of the Israel settlement; and Whereas, in 2016, the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits of the United Methodist Church announced that five Israeli banks would be excluded from their investment portfolios, explicitly because of those banks’ involvement in settlement construction in the occupied Palestinian territories. Therefore be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference of the United Methodist Church opposes any state or federal legislation that seeks to restrict the right to address injustice through boycotts, divestment and sanctions and joins the Rabbinical Council of Jewish Voice for Peace in calling on our elected officials “to resist efforts to stifle the movement toward justice for Palestinians through the current wave of ‘anti-BDS’ legislation;” or Executive Orders; and Be it further resolved that the Conference Secretary write a letter to the President of the United States, the Governor of New York State, the New York State congressional representatives, the Speaker of the New York State Assembly, and the President of the New York State Senate informing those elected officials of this resolution and attaching the full text of the resolution. Said letter to include the approximate number of congregations and church members within the Upper New York Annual Conference; and Be it further resolved that in the letter to the Governor of New York State, the Governor be urged to rescind the Anti-BDS Executive Order 157 of June 2016; and Be it further resolved that the Upper New York Annual Conference Secretary write a letter to the New York Annual Conference Secretary informing the New York Conference of our resolution; and Be it further resolved that the Upper New York Annual Conference urges all United Methodist Annual Conferences, congregations, and church members to contact their local, regional and national elected officials, to communicate this resolution and to advocate against anti-BDS legislation appearing anywhere in this country. UNY2017.SHRec-3 – Consider Investing in Wespath’s Equity Social Values Plus Fund (ESVPF) Whereas, the Equity Social Values Plus Fund (ESVPF) is available for participant defined contribution accounts and conference deposit accounts with Wespath Benefits and Investments (Wespath); and Whereas, Wespath has developed a policy that may remove companies from its ESVPF named by seven to 10 Annual Conferences in divestment resolutions (http://www.wespath.org/assets/1/7/investment_policy.pdf); and Whereas, in 2015 the Upper New York Conference approved such a divestment resolution; and Whereas, Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions, and Hewlett Packard are the subject of such resolutions and have been removed from the ESVPF per Wespath's policy; and Whereas, while Wespath as a financial institution does not take a stand on the reasons Conferences

61


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

have voted to divest from these three companies, they have responded to serve those clients by providing the ESVPF; and Whereas, Caterpillar Inc. provides military bulldozers and earth-moving equipment, which are used to uproot olive groves, demolish Palestinian homes, construct illegal settlements, and build segregated roads and the separation barrier on occupied land; Motorola Solutions provides surveillance systems for illegal settlements, military bases, and the separation wall as well as communication devices for the Israeli military; and Hewlett Packard provides data storage for settlements, manages information technology for the Israeli Navy, and provides biometric monitoring of checkpoints inside the West Bank; and Whereas, for up to 10 years, many religious investors and ecumenical groups have asked these companies to stop selling their products to the Israeli government for use in sustaining and maintaining the military occupation and settlement building and they have refused (https://www.kairosresponse.org/corporate_engagement_04-11.html); and Whereas, the Palestinian Christian community, through the Kairos Palestine Document, has requested the support of the wider Church in their struggle (Kairos Palestine. “A Moment of Truth: A Word of Faith, Hope and Love from the Heart of Palestinian Suffering” December 2009 http://www.kairospalestine.ps/index.php/about-us/kairos-palestine-document). Therefore be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference clergy and lay employee participants and the annual conference consider ESVPF for the portion of their accounts invested in equities. 2017-2018 Upper New York Conference Advance Specials Whereas, it is the responsibility of the Conference to approve ministries as Conference Advance Specials, which gives these ministries permission to request support from churches in the conference, Therefore be it resolved that the following list of 2017-2018 Conference Advance Specials be approved: x x x x x x x x x x x x x

UNY2017.SHRec-4- Permission for a special offering to Support Prison Chaplains Certification through the NYS Council of Churches Whereas, the Upper New York Conference is called to respond to the call of Christ to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, visit the stranger, clothe the naked, take care of the sick and visit the prisoner that we hear in Matthew 25: 34 – 40. Matt 25:34 Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ 37Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or naked and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40And

63


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

the king will answer them, ‘I tell you the truth, just as you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did it for me;’ and Whereas, the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision is responsible for the care, confinement, and rehabilitation at 57 correctional facilities owned and operated by the State of New York (as of 2014) Not including county jails or federal prisons in New York; and Whereas, there are presently 54,700 people who live behind locked doors and are not able to respond to Bishop Webb’s invitation “The doors, hearts, and minds of our churches are open to all, and I invite you – whether you are long time church member or someone seeking a church family – to join us for worship; and Whereas, all chaplains of all faiths in the 57 New York State Prisons are certified through the New York State Council of Churches; and Whereas, financial support from the Upper New York Conference for the New York State Council of Churches has decreased markedly over the past three years resulting in great difficulty for the certification and support of all New York State prison chaplains. Therefore be it resolved that the Social Holiness Committee of the Upper New York Annual conference be granted permission to invite all congregations of the Upper New York Annual Conference receive a special offering to help support and fund the prison ministries through the New York State Council of Churches; and Be it further resolved that resources supporting and pertaining to Prison Ministries for this “special offering” shall be made available to all local congregations to help educate and involve them in the vital ministry we are called by Jesus Christ to be a part of; and Be it further resolved that the date for this special offering shall be coordinated with the Social Holiness, the Bishop’s office and the Finance offices of the Upper New York Conference for the fall of 2017. UNY2017.SHRec.5 – Special Sunday Offering Whereas, The 2016 Book of Discipline states that “six church-wide special Sundays with offerings shall be celebrated in each United Methodist Church” (¶263); and Whereas, we are “called to be in ministry with our neighbors in all places;” and Whereas, The Upper New York Conference only achieved an average participation rate of 22.23% for these special Sunday offerings in 2015 as indicated below: Human Relations 20.50%

UMCOR Native American Peace With World (1 Great Hr) Ministries Justice Communion 32.30%

21.40%

18.70%

13.90%

UM Student 26.60%

Therefore be it resolved that worshipping communities of the Upper New York Conference pledge to

64


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

actively discuss and become educated about these offerings in effort to commit to supporting each offering; and Be it further resolved that the Upper New York Conference set a Conference-wide participation goal of at least 30% for each of the six Special Sunday Offerings for 2018 as we move toward 100% participation; and Be it further resolved that the Conference Director of Communications publish a list of all congregations who participate in all six Special Sunday offerings like that celebrating congregations who pay ministry shares in full. UNY2017.1 – Spiritual Gifts Whereas, The Discipline ¶131 “The Unity of Ministry In Christ” states that there is but one ministry Christ, but there are diverse gifts and evidences of God’s grace in the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:4-16)”; and Whereas, “Christ gave his people gifts when he ascended on high to prepare God’s people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up, until we all reach unity in the faith and knowledge of the Son of God, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ...” Ephesians 4:7-13; and Whereas, this teaching has been lost in the centuries following Christ’s time on earth, but has been revived in recent years; and Whereas, the teaching of the seven basic spiritual gifts is found in Romans 12:1-8, I Corinthians 12 and other scriptures; and Whereas, churches that have been taught about spiritual gifts prosper because everyone knows their spiritual gift(s) and uses them to minister to Christ in unity together; and Whereas, children and young people today find their spiritual gift and begin to use it for God’s Kingdom while they are still young so they will become an integral part of the Body of Christ; and Whereas, many people in the Church do not know about spiritual gifts and have not found their gift to help minister in the Church for Christ, and have wondered how they can help in some way, and the unity of the Church has been hindered as it serves Christ. Therefore be it resolved that all of our churches in the conference be invited to receive training in the Spiritual Gifts this coming year of 2017-2018. Suspension of the Rules #2 (Saturday, 9:30 a.m. Plenary) Resolved that the rules be suspended for the purpose of moving directly to a vote, allowing no discussion on resolutions. Resolution UNY2017.2 – Support the 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act Whereas, current New York state laws do not expressly allow judges to set conditions required for

65


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

release - the risk to public safety is not considered in deciding if an individual should be released for trial; and Whereas, in New York, release is determined by an individual's ability to post bail, often resulting in the disadvantaged being confined for months and even years because of financial constraints - not because they pose a danger; and Whereas, The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to a speedy and public trial - yet today defendants are held in custody for excessive periods of time awaiting trial; and Whereas, New York is only one of two states — the other being North Carolina — that treats teenagers as adults in criminal court with potential imprisonment in local county jails or state prisons; and Whereas, currently, there are approximately 500 people under the age of 18 being held in local jails and state prisons and without age-appropriate facilities, these teenagers face a greater risk of assault, sexual violence, and suicide; and Whereas, most witness identifications are conducted using prejudiced photo arrays — that is, without “blind” or “double-blind” administrators — shown to a victim or witness of a crime to confirm or deny the identity of a suspect; and Whereas, New York does not currently require that interrogations of criminal suspects be recorded by law enforcement. These interrogations provide vital evidence against criminal offenders and exonerate innocent people. But there are cases of wrongful convictions and police officers subjected to erroneous allegations; and Whereas, accounts of individuals receiving vastly disparate levels of court appointed representation are heard all too often. For example, in 2014, the Hurrell-Harring et al. v. State of New York lawsuit revealed failure to provide the necessary levels of indigent defense services in Ontario, Onondaga, Schuyler, Suffolk, and Washington Counties; and Whereas, the passage of the 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act will address all of the above grave injustices; and Whereas, The 2016 Book of Resolutions ¶5031 states that “The biblical view of the criminal justice system is one that should be characterized by accessibility to all (Deuteronomy 1:17; 16:18), impartiality (Exodus 22:1-3), honesty (Exodus 23:7), integrity (Exodus 23:6, 8), and fairness to all without regard to status (Leviticus 19:15).”; and Whereas, The 2016 Book of Resolutions ¶5031 states, “The United Methodist Church urges the following recommendations … (a) speedy trial provisions; and (b) a presumption that a person accused of a crime should be released on personal recognizance unless an evidentiary-based determination is made that personal recognizance will not reasonably assure future appearance or represents a risk of imminent physical harm to others” and that “Financial bond should be used as a last resort. A monetary bond can create an undue burden on individuals accused of crimes who have limited financial means and results in unnecessarily prolonged periods of pretrial detention;” and Whereas, The 2016 Book of Resolution ¶5031 states that United Methodists advocate for “legislation

66


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

that will eliminate racism and classism in the criminal-justice system; ensure equality, transparency, and fairness; and protect the human rights of all adults and children;” and Whereas, The 2016 Book of Discipline ¶164H states that as United Methodists, we believe that “Through God’s transforming power, restorative justice seeks to…bring healing to all involved, including the victim, the offender, the families, and the community.” and Whereas, we believe that the reforms listed in the 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act will bring New York State’s criminal justice system closer to a model of restorative justice rather than retributive justice; and Whereas, the Upper New York Conference has more than 168,000 members in 49 of the 62 counties of New York state; and Whereas, criminal justice reform is a non-partisan issue. Therefore be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference of the United Methodist Church heartily and emphatically supports the passage of the 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act; and Be it further resolved that the members of the Upper New York Conference boldly petition New York State lawmakers to pass the 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act; and Be it further resolved that the Upper New York Conference calls on faithful United Methodists in the state of New York to petition their state senators and assembly members to show their support for the passage of the 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act; and Be it further resolved that the director of communications of the Upper New York Conference be directed to publish this resolution as they see appropriate, no later than 30 days after the adjourning of the 2017 Upper New York Annual Conference session; and Be it further resolved that the secretary of the Upper New York Conference be directed to send a letter to every New York state senator and assembly member (addresses attached) and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo (address attached)—no later than 30 days after the adjourning of the 2017 Upper New York Annual Conference session—notifying them of the passage of this resolution including the Whereas and Be it resolved sections of this resolution as well as a copy of The 2016 Book of Resolution ¶5031 in its entirety, and Be it further resolved that the secretary of the Upper New York Conference is also directed to notify the Secretaries of the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Annual conferences (contact information attached) — no later than five days after the adjourning of the 2017 Upper New York Annual Conference session — of the passage of this resolution in whatever medium he sees appropriate including the Whereas and Be it resolved sections of this resolution, a call to the leadership of these conferences to study the injustice of their state prosecuting teenagers as adults, and an invitation to prophetically speak out against it. UNY2017.3 – Support to Raise the Age of Juvenile Jurisdiction to Age 18 Whereas, a large and relatively new body of research is revealing that young adulthood is a time of dramatic change in basic thinking structures, as well as in the brain. Consensus is emerging that an 18-

67


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

year-old is not the same person she or he will be at 25, just as an 11-year-old brain is not the same as he or she will be at 18. They don’t look the same, feel the same, think the same, or act the same. Whereas, across theories and research frameworks, a sequence of developmental shifts emerge, which can be organized into three categories; adolescence (generally defined as puberty through age 18), young adulthood (generally defined as 18-22 or 18-25), later adulthood (generally defined as mid-20s and older) Whereas, New York state is only one of two states that continues to prosecute 16- and 17-year-olds through the adult criminal justice system; and Whereas, leading brain research indicates that the cognitive skills of youth are not fully developed until their mid-20s, rendering them more susceptible to peer pressure, less capable of mature judgment and consequential thinking, though highly receptive to interventions; and Whereas, youth incarcerated with adult are less likely to receive the services they need to succeed, and are at increased risk of violent or sexual assault, mental health issues, and suicide; and Therefore be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church publicly supports a change in the law raising the age of juvenile jurisdiction to age 18 and process all 16- and 17year-old youths accused of crimes as juveniles and customize sentencing for all but the gravest crimes of violence. We call for access to programs and services tailored to support rehabilitation for all minors under the age of 18 and we call for implementation of polices that both promote public safety and improve outcomes for court-involved youth. UNY2017.5 – Speaking Out for Compassion: Transforming the Context of Hate in the United States Whereas, reports of hate crimes or acts of bullying have become part of our daily lives of late; and Whereas, these acts promote and are manifestations of bigotry based on religion, race, sexual orientation, and national origin; and Whereas, we are alarmed by the climate of hate in public discourse of late; and Whereas, we must challenge the misdirection of anger toward the most vulnerable in our society; and Whereas, we deplore acts of hate or violence against groups or persons based on race, color, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender, disability, status, economic conditions, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religious affiliation; Therefore be it resolved that United Methodists in the Upper New York Conference be encouraged to end complicity with hate by speaking out when jokes, disparagements, and stereotypes are based on differences; and Be it further resolved that we create opportunities to hear from excluded groups about the reality and impact of hate and partner with them to act for justice; and Be it further resolved that conversations be convened within families, churches and community

68


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

gatherings, and other political arenas about realities, fears, and the need for compassionate response; and Be it further resolved that United Methodists work with other ecumenical and interfaith partners to develop community activities to unite religions in our work to end all manifestations of hate; and Be it further resolved that United Methodists of the Upper New York Conference be active participants in civic or religious organizations that promote unity and diversity, and work to eradicate acts of hate as well as work with diverse grassroots and national organizations; and Be it further resolved that we become aware of and understand internet bullying and peer pressure; and Be it further resolved that language of responsibility and healing be used rather than blame and punishment. UNY2017.6 – Resolution on Divestment from Fossil Fuel Companies Whereas, The United Methodist Church has acknowledged the risks of fossil fuel dependence for 37 years through its Energy Policy Statement in The Book of Resolutions, resolution 1001. The investment policy goals of The United Methodist Church as outlined in The Book of Resolutions, resolution 4071 include investing in corporations, companies, institutions or funds making a positive contribution to the realization of the goals outlined in the Social Principles and The Book of Resolutions, and exclude investing in companies that violate church values; and Whereas, The Social Principles in ¶ 160.D state that climate change will bring “severe environmental, economic, and social implications,” which will “disproportionately affect individuals and nations least responsible for the emissions." The Arctic reached 50 degrees above normal during the 2015-2016 winter. Ice is melting, wildlife is dying and subsistence hunting is giving way to food banks and feeding programs, and Whereas, the processes and byproducts related to the extraction of petroleum, coal, and natural gas are damaging to the health of people who work in these industries as well as those who live on or near extraction sites. The extraction and burning of fossil fuels exacerbates climate change. Limiting the warming of the earth to 2-degrees Celsius, the internationally agreed upon limit for human survival, requires that the vast majority of the world’s fossil fuels be left in the ground. Avoiding the worst impacts of climate change urgently requires a transition to sustainable energy, and Whereas, United Methodists live and serve on the front lines of disasters like Hurricane Sandy, Typhoon Haiyan, prolonged droughts, devastating floods, massive wildfires, and other extreme weather events, which will increase in frequency and severity with climate change. Continued investment in fossil fuel companies undermines The United Methodist Church’s ministries to the most vulnerable among us, including those who are hungry, sick, and/or living in poverty. Continued investment in fossil fuel companies signals a grave disregard for the lives of young people. Therefore be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church and any of its agencies shall not knowingly make investments in any company or entity whose core business activity involves the production of petroleum, natural gas or thermal coal. Core business activity refers

69


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

to a company's primary, or central focus of activity and is an essential element in the company's economic success. A "core business" is one that accounts for 10% or more of a company's revenue derived from the objectionable products and/or services; and Be it further resolved that the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church joins the New York Annual Conference in requesting and urging that the United Methodist Frontier Foundation add a similar investment screen to its holdings and investments related to any and all funds held on behalf of the Upper New York Conference. (Note: this request has also been made by the New York Annual Conference). UNY2017.7 – Health Care for All in the United States Whereas, from our earliest days United Methodists have believed that providing health care to others is an important duty of Christians. John Wesley found ways to offer medical services to the poor in London. The first Methodist Social Creed (adopted in 1908) urged working conditions to safeguard the health of workers and community. The provision of health care for all without regard to status or ability to pay is portrayed in the parable of the good Samaritan (Luke 10:24-35) as the duty of every neighbor and thus of every person; and Whereas, The United Methodist Church is committed to health care for all in the United States, and therefore advocates for a comprehensive health-care system that includes access for all, quality of care, and effective management of costs; and Therefore be it resolved that a call for swift passage of legislation that will entitle all persons within the borders of the United States to the provision of health care services, the cost of such services to be equitably shared by American taxpayers, and the government to distribute the funds to providers in a coordinated and comprehensive manner. UNY2017.8 – Health Care Whereas, Jesus admonished his followers to care for the poor and by his example demonstrated his concern for the sick by his compassion and healing; and Whereas, without health insurance many people cannot afford health care, and thereby defer seeking treatment until their condition is critical to the point of fatality; and Whereas, the United States ranks 37th among the nations of the world as to health care of its citizens, (France, Australia, Germany, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Norway, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the U.K. were all judged to be superior), and “a lack of universal health care was noted as the key difference between the U.S. and the other industrial nations” (Time Magazine, June 17, 2014), and 13th among the developed nations as to its health care of its citizens (World Health Organization Ranking; The World’s Health Systems); and Whereas, the Affordable Care Act of 2010 has made health insurance accessible to over 20 million people who, because of the cost of a preexisting condition, were unable to obtain it prior to the inception of the law, and by the testimony of many of these people, would not be alive now without the ACA; and

70


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

Whereas, we believe that equal access to the benefits of effective health care is a human right, which should not be denied because of the inability to pay, or because of a preexisting condition, or age; or curtailed when cost exceeds a determined sum, nor should there be a limit on annual or lifetime cost. Therefore be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church encourage its members to petition their federal representatives to preserve the Affordable Care Act unless and until they have a better plan that the ACA, to insure that every American, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, age, financial condition, mental, or physical health has access to affordable health insurance; and to unequivocally adopt the policy of resisting all efforts to abort or curtail the present plan as it has been implemented without guarantee. UNY2017.10 – Support for New York Health Act – A.5062/S.3525 Whereas, United Methodists and members of our congregations in the Upper New York Conference struggle with grave health needs, access to health care and affordability of health care expenses; and, Whereas, in ¶ 161.V of the Social Principles, The United Methodist Church affirms health care as “a basic human right”; “providing the care needed to maintain health, prevent disease, and restore health after injury or illness is a responsibility each person owes others and government owes to all, a responsibility government ignores at its peril”; and “we believe it is a government responsibility to provide citizens with health care”; and, Whereas, alongside its many flaws, the Affordable Care Act brought improvements to health care in the U.S., including expansion of access to health care for tens of millions of U.S. citizens, banning denial of coverage based on pre-existing conditions, expanding coverage of children on parents’ plans up to age 26, expanding access to contraceptive coverage, and expanding access to Medicaid for low-income U.S. citizens; and, Whereas, the Trump Administration and Congress are in the process of repealing the ACA, while making promises to reduce costs and expand access to coverage but without having a ready alternative; and, Whereas, as a general rule, expanding coverage of services increases costs while decreasing coverage of services decreases costs but expanding access to coverage has no meaning if the coverage isn’t affordable; and, Whereas, the only obvious solution that achieves all the important goals of 1) expansion of coverage, 2) expansion of covered services, 3) decrease of costs, and 4) elimination of limited health networks, providing access to all doctors and medical centers, is government-run, single-payer health care; and, Whereas, one of the most important keys to the success of such a system is the elimination of health insurance companies because it reduces the middle layer/third party administrative waste and eliminates the presence of third parties seeking to profit off our health care, including their incentives to capriciously deny coverage of services in order to pump up their profits; and, Whereas, such a system would be paid for more fairly and evenly, including the elimination of disparity between large businesses/organizations/unions that have the leverage to bargain for lower costs and good health care coverage for their employees, while employees of smaller businesses/organizations

71


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

have little bargaining leverage and individuals have no leverage and no means for bargaining which creates a direct relationship between type/size of employer and cost and quality of health coverage, as directly evidenced by the Upper New York Conference’s health insurance plans that are available to its clergy in comparison to the far superior plans and lower costs offered by large, private, and public sector employers; and, Whereas, at a time when positive, comprehensive solutions are not going to come from Congress, a universal coverage, single-payer system has been introduced in the NY State legislature (for full text go to http://public.leginfo.state.ny.us and type: a5062) and is poised for passage again in the Assembly with work needed to advocate for its passage in the Senate; Therefore be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church supports the New York Health Act (A.5062/S.3525); and, Be it further resolved that the UNYAC authorizes the Conference Secretary and Bishop Webb to band with others to organize and work toward passage of the NYHA by taking the necessary steps for the UNYAC to join the Campaign for New York Health (www.nyhcampaign.org) and endorse the NYHA; and, Be it further resolved that the Conference Secretary, on behalf of the UNYAC, will express its support for the NYHA to the sponsors of the NYHA, which include Assemblyman Richard N. Gottfried (GottfriedR@assembly.state.ny.us), chair of the Assembly Health Committee, and Senator Bill Perkins (perkins@senate.state.ny.us). UNY2017.11 – Resolution Endorsing Equitable, Just, and Environmentally and Fiscally Responsible Carbon Pricing, in Conjunction with the Removal of Fossil Fuel Subsidies Whereas, global warming is causing calamitous change to our climate and the life inhabiting our planet; and Whereas, a task force, formed by action of the Cal-Nevada 2014 Annual Conference, recommended that the United Methodist Church take action on behalf of current and future victims of climate change; and Whereas, in order to arrest the alarming rate of global warming and climate change, urgent action is needed to smoothly and rapidly move away from artificially cheap fossil fuels whose prices do not include the environmental and health costs of their use; and Whereas, all people throughout the world will benefit as the United States moves quickly away from fossil fuels. In particular, those with the least resources who are least able to protect their homes, livelihood and habitat from coastal and inland flooding, drought, rivers drying up, melting glaciers, receding bodies of water and crop failure will benefit as the United States shifts to renewable energy and makes new grid and storage technology available to the world; and Whereas, to allow our economy to "freely" and smoothly withdraw from fossil fuels and shift to clean energy, economists advocate putting a price on carbon pollution (CO2e emissions) that (1) follows a predictable path, rising every year until the price is no longer needed because the switch to renewables has been accomplished, and (2) is assessed “upstream” where the carbon first enters the economy, at the point of import or extraction; and representatives to preserve the Affordable Care Act unless and until they have a better plan that the ACA, to insure that every American, regardless of

72


2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journa IV. DAILY PROCEEDlNGS

Whereas, an upstream carbon price assigns a cost to carbon that is partly passed on “down” throughout the economy and becomes imbedded in all prices for all products to the degree that fossil fuels are used in their manufacture or transport. There are two ways to put an upstream price on carbon. First, the quantity of carbon emissions allowed can be restricted, and emissions allowances can be auctioned to fossil fuel suppliers. In this case, the price paid at auction, for an “allowance” (right to emit a ton of CO2e) is the “price on carbon.” Second, a fee or tax can be assessed on fossil fuels as they are imported or extracted. In this case, the "price on carbon" is the fee or tax paid by the importer or extractor. In both cases, suppliers of fossil fuel will adjust prices to incorporate some or all of the fee or tax. For producers who use a lot of fossil fuel in the manufacture of their product – such as power plants, or manufacturers of iron, steel, glass, cement or paper – employing more energy efficient technologies and switching to renewable energy sources will become increasingly attractive as the carbon price increases. Consumers will adjust their purchasing decisions as they confront higher prices for fossil fuel and electricity. A carbon fee or tax is favored by most economists because it is simple, transparent, and relatively inexpensive to administer; and Whereas, without pricing carbon pollution, suppliers and consumers of fossil fuel are able to pollute the air and water and send carbon into the atmosphere without financial consequences. Shouldn’t the prices we pay for fossil fuels and fossil fuel-intensive products reflect the cost of our fuel use to our health and our planet? and Whereas, without offsetting compensation, persons of low income will suffer disproportionately from increased costs arising from an effective carbon price. This is unfair and unjust, because persons of low income are “carbon virtuous”: they have the lowest carbon footprints and are least responsible for climate change. Economists recommend a portion of revenues from pricing carbon be used to “offset unfair burdens on lower income households;” and Whereas, pricing carbon is only one fundamental piece in the complex puzzle we must complete together as we confront climate change. Many other actions and policies are also vital. Not investing in coal, natural gas and petroleum is critical. Joining with native peoples in protecting their land, air, and water is important. Funding research for energy and carbon storage and grid interface technologies that can be used both in the United States and in the developing world is paramount. The success of all of these actions will be facilitated by a carbon price. In addition, if the public and our policy makers so choose, some of the carbon price revenues may be used to fund the research on which global cooperation and success in combating climate change depend; and Whereas, economists recommend the removal of subsidies that “reward” fossil fuel extraction; and Whereas, as imperfect human beings, it is natural that our highest expression of love for Creation is our love for our children; Therefore be it resolved that for the sake of our children and our Creator, we endorse carbon pricing that: is equitable, just, and environmentally and fiscally responsible, does not hurt persons of low income, is assessed at the point of import or extraction, and rises briskly at a steady, predictable rate, is implemented in conjunction with removal of fossil fuel subsidies.

Resolution to Maintain Unity of UMC offered by Doug Mackey Therfore, UNY supports ways to maintain unity of UMC and do not support plans that include division of schism efforts. Motion to Adjourn Be it resolved that the eighth session of The Upper New York Annual Conference be adjourned until we gather on May 31-June 2, 2018, in Syracuse, N.Y., for the ninth session of The Upper New York Annual Conference. Further, that in matters of importance requiring attention between sessions of the Upper New York Annual Conference, a mail ballot be authorized, where the Bishop and a majority of the district superintendents deem that process to be appropriate.

D. No pastor’s salary can be decreased as a result of this policy, as long as they retain their current appointment. E. All churches are strongly encouraged to offer a gross salary increase of no less than the ten year average increase in the Consumer Price Index (1.8% for 2018) in order to account for increases in the costs of living. Churches are encouraged to consider further raises based on exceptional service. II. Clergy Housing Policy (Comm. On Equitable Compensation) In the United Methodist Church, housing is provided to clergy. While the parsonage remains the normative provision of housing, some parishes prefer to offer, and some clergy prefer to receive, a housing allowance instead. The complexities of contemporary economics, local church resources and pastoral households make it less likely that a “one size fits all” housing provision best meets the needs of every situation. Local churches and clergy both need to carefully weigh the advantages and disadvantages, especially if considering a change from one to the other. A. Values and Considerations The Upper New York Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church believes that congregations and clergy benefit when clergy and their families live in buildings which are safe, clean, comfortable, and as commodious as the average home in their community. It is required that clergy housing will meet all applicable local and state residential codes. As faithful stewards of the earth and other limited resources, congregations and clergy are encouraged to make clergy housing as energy efficient as possible. In order to be as welcoming as possible, consideration should be given to making clergy housing accessible to residents or guests with mobility challenges. Local churches may prefer to provide a housing allowance for a variety of reasons: less property to maintain and repair, more predictable budget implications, and no “landlord” issues with their pastor. Likewise, clergy households may prefer a housing allowance for other reasons, such as: accumulation of equity, allowance for differing clergy household needs, ability to locate in a desired location, freedom to renovate and refurbish as desired, and no “tenant” relationship with parishioners. However, it is also to be acknowledged that tension may exist between the appointive/itinerant system of clergy deployment and the housing allowance system. Pastoral appointments are made on an annual basis at the will of the bishop. The financial advantage to long-term clergy home ownership may be at odds with a short-term need or desire for a pastoral transition. It must be understood by all that the provision of a housing allowance or parsonage shall not be a primary consideration by the bishop and cabinet for future appointments for the pastor. Further, a local church that has a parsonage available to the pastor is under no obligation to provide a housing allowance if that pastor prefers to live in a different location. B. Parsonages 1.

The parsonage is to be mutually respected by the pastor’s family as the property of the church and by the church as a place of privacy for the pastor’s family. (Book of Discipline of the UMC, par. 258.2.g.16) The chairperson of the Staff-Parish Relations Committee, the chairperson of the Board of Trustees or the chairperson of the Parsonage Committee, if one exists, and the pastor shall make an annual inspection and review of the church-owned parsonage to assure proper maintenance. (Book of Discipline of the UMC, paragraph 258.2.g.16, and paragraph 2532.4) The church shall provide a parsonage which addresses the values noted above and the standards listed below. Standard maintenance and repairs, and renovation of the parsonage are the responsibility of the church. The Trustees or Parsonage Committee shall arrange, supervise, and arrange payment for such tasks. Necessary work shall be scheduled in consultation with the pastor. The church and the pastor shall work together to develop a process to assure timely, good quality repairs and maintenance. • • • • • • • •

Parsonages with a wood burning heat source must have a professional chimney inspection (and cleaning if necessary) at least every 2 years. The pastor shall furnish the house to suit his or her needs. The pastor is responsible for notifying the church about necessary repairs as the need arises. The pastor is responsible for the repair of damages exceeding normal wear and tear. The church, in consultation with the pastor, is responsible for lawn care and snow removal. The church shall pay for insurance, heat, electricity, garbage and trash removal, water and sewer, basic telephone service (landline or cell), and installation fees for cable or satellite television service if broadcast reception is inadequate. Churches that expect pastors to have access to the internet away from the church should pay for internet access at the parsonage. The pastor shall pay for personal toll calls and communication services beyond those provided by the church.

If a pastor is appointed to serve more than one local congregation, all congregations shall share equitably the costs and other responsibilities of providing a parsonage. If more than one congregation has a parsonage, the parsonage of residence shall be determined by the District Superintendent in consultation with the appointed pastor and the congregations. If a parsonage is occupied by a clergy couple serving different appointments, all congregations served shall share equitably and reasonably the costs and responsibilities of providing a parsonage. The parsonage of residence and shared cost responsibilities shall be determined by the District Superintendent in consultation with the appointed pastors and affected congregations. Adherence to this policy by both clergy and congregation is essential to the appointment covenant. Failure to adhere to this policy by either clergy or congregation may jeopardize current and future appointments.

above are mandated when purchasing or building a new parsonage. (Book of Discipline of the UMC, par. 2543.3b) 6. Transition Protocols Prior to a pastorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move, but no more often than every 5 years, a certified building inspector shall inspect the parsonage so that the congregation can plan necessary maintenance and repairs. If a pastor is moving and the parsonage has had a professional inspection within the past 5 years, this pre-move inspection may be performed by the outgoing pastor, the chairperson of the SPRC, and the chairperson of the Board of Trustees and/or the chairperson of the Parsonage Committee or their designates. The outgoing pastor shall leave the parsonage clean and in good order. As soon as possible after a change in appointment is announced, the Trustees or Parsonage Committee shall inspect the parsonage for maintenance needs and damage caused by the outgoing residents, including damage caused by pets. [It is recommended that a signed Parsonage Inspection Form and a Parsonage Transition Form be filed with the District Office and a copy of the inspection provided to the incoming pastor.] If excessive damage is discovered it will be the responsibility of the outgoing pastor to pay for repairs of, or replace the damaged item(s). When the pastor or family has allowed smoking within the parsonage, the cost of professional cleaning, and purchase of an air purifier if necessary, to remove smoke odor will be the responsibility of the outgoing pastor. The charge shall refurbish, repair and thoroughly clean the parsonage prior to a new pastor moving in. Damaged walls, ceilings, floors, windows, fixtures and appliances shall be repaired or replaced. Painted surfaces shall be cleaned or repainted. Carpets shall be thoroughly steam cleaned or replaced; replacement is required if the carpet is torn, excessively worn, or permanently stained. Windows shall be cleaned inside and out. In the event that such work requires that the incoming pastor must make temporary living arrangements, related expenses will be paid by the receiving church. It is recommended that a photographic record of house and yard, including each roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition and contents, be created and filed for reference and planning purposes. 7. Treatment of Parsonage Value in Compensation Packages The General Board of Pension & Health Benefits provides the following guidance: When a parsonage is provided, it will be valued at 25% of salary for benefit computation purposes. In a multi-church appointment, this factor is added to salary for all churches served by the pastor, regardless of which church owns the parsonage in which the clergy person lives. a. If a clergy couple is serving separate churches and each church/charge has a parsonage available, each clergypersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire compensation will include a parsonage value equal of 25% of salary regardless of where the clergy couple lives. [Note: only the fair rental value of the occupied parsonage is reported by the clergy couple as part of self-employment income]

177

b. However, if a clergy couple is serving separate churches, and is living in a parsonage provided by one of the churches with no parsonage offered or available from the other church, only the clergyperson serving the church which provides the parsonage will have the parsonage value added to salary. C. Housing Allowance All full-time clergy appointed to a full-time charge or a Conference-responsible extension ministry shall be provided either a parsonage or a housing allowance. In the event that an appointment has already moved to providing a housing allowance for their pastor and a parsonage is no longer available the charge will negotiate an appropriate housing allowance with the incoming pastor. A housing allowance enjoyed by a pastor appointed to charge “A” will not necessarily translate into a housing allowance for that same pastor when s/he is appointed to charge “B.” Housing allowances shall exist in accordance with the following policy or successive policies as determined by future sessions of the Annual Conference: 1. The housing allowance policy will be in effect from the time the charge moves from providing a physical parsonage to a housing allowance for the current pastor or an incoming pastor. Once the charge makes the transition to providing a housing allowance, that charge shall not be required to return to providing a physical parsonage. In the event that the charge wishes to do so, see item #4 below. 2. Charges that elect to provide a housing allowance shall do so at a charge/church conference chaired by the District Superintendent after and only after following the steps outlined in item #3 below. 3. A housing allowance agreement shall be drawn up by the local charge (the Staff/Parish Relations Committee and the Board of Trustees, in consultation with the District Superintendent, should be involved in this process as a joint effort). The agreement shall include the following: a. For the purchase of a home (house, condo, etc.) by the pastor: i.

Costs associated with a typical annual mortgage, based upon a 20% down payment and 30 year mortgage, for a home that meets the size requirements of the Conference Parsonage Standards, to cover at minimum: monthly principle and interest costs and mortgage insurance.

ii.

Costs associated with utility expenses (heat, light, phone, basic cable, internet service if not provided in a separate church office), property taxes for a home that meets the size requirements of the Conference Parsonage Standards. This information will be provided by a reputable realtor or rental agent so a dollar range for housing may be set for the incoming pastor as s/he considers the appointment and seeks housing.

178

iii.

The housing allowance will be at minimum the sum of items i and ii above.

9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44

iv.

Charges providing a housing allowance may assist the pastor in obtaining a loan or provide a grant for down payment if needed. Any such agreement for down payment shall become a part of the housing allowance agreement.

v.

The housing allowance agreement shall be signed by the pastor, the chair of Trustees, and the chair of S/PPRC.

EXAMPLE: i. Purchase price of home = $140,000; 20% down - $28,000; 30 year mortgage of $112,000 @ 4.75% is $585 x 12 = $7,020 annually property and school taxes of $4,000 homeowners insurance of $600 ii. Average monthly utility expenses of gas, electric, and bundled phone/internet/tv = $345 x 12 = $4,140 Minimum housing allowance in this example is $15,760

b. For the rental of a home (house, apartment, condo, etc.) by the pastor: The housing allowance shall be determined in accordance with item a. sub items i. through v. above. It should be noted that housing (either as an allowance or in physical form) shall be provided in accordance with parsonage standards. In the event that the appointed clergyperson chooses to expend less in a rental circumstance s/he shall be afforded the opportunity to save and invest the difference for the eventuality of providing housing for herself or himself in retirement. This provision provides for the near equivalent opportunity for the pastor to accumulate something akin to equity over the life of the housing allowance. By the same token, should the clergyperson choose to rent a home more costly than a home that meets the parsonage standards, the charge shall not be responsible for the additional costs associated with that choice. c. A charge may use the annual income and capital gain from the sale of a parsonage over the rate of inflation to help support the housing allowance. d. All current IRS regulations shall be met for both recording and reporting purposes. 4. A charge shall not be required to establish a parsonage after changing to a housing allowance. However, if a charge chooses to return to providing a parsonage, it shall do so only after: a. A full and frank discussion with the clergyperson, the S/PPRC, and the local Board of Trustees. b. An agreement dissolving the housing allowance agreement has been signed by the pastor, the chair of S/PPRC and the chair of the Board of Trustees.

c. A proposal for the purchase of a new parsonage has been completed in full accordance with the United Methodist Book of Discipline. d. The proposed parsonage is in full compliance with current Conference Parsonage Standards. D. Housing Exclusion Pastors may utilize the favorable tax advantages of a housing exclusion, which does not increase the compensation package but does lower the pastor’s federal income tax liability. 1. A Housing Allowance is money paid to the pastor for the purpose of housing in addition to base salary. A Housing Exclusion is the amount of a pastor’s base salary that he/she declares to be excluded from taxable income as housing related expenses. Housing is exempt from Federal Income taxes but is NOT exempt from self-employment tax. 2. A pastor living in a parsonage may have a Housing Exclusion; a pastor living in his/her own home may take advantage of a Housing Exclusion in addition to the Housing Allowance. This can be accomplished by passing a resolution designating an amount greater than the housing allowance listed on the compensation package. a. Section 107 of the IRC provides that: “In the case of a minister of the gospel, gross income does not include: 1) the rental value of a home furnished as part of compensation; or 2) the rental allowance paid as part of compensation, to the extent used to rent or provide a home and to the extent such allowance does not exceed the fair rental value of the home, including furnishings and appurtenances such as a garage, plus the cost of utilities.” i.

3.

A “minister of the gospel” is defined as any duly ordained, commissioned, or licensed minister of the church, who is performing substantially all of the religious duties of his/her church or denomination. The “fair rental value” is the annual amount for which a similar furnished home in a similar neighborhood could be rented, including utilities. This can be determined by formal or informal appraisal by a realtor, or by comparing actual rents advertised for similar homes in the community.

Below are some further guidelines regarding a Housing Exclusion: a. The housing exclusion must be put in place by official church action before payment is made to the pastor. b. The housing exclusion recognized for tax purposes is limited to the lesser of : i. The amount declared by the church. ii. The actual amount spent to provide housing. iii. The fair rental value as described above. c. The housing exclusion may be paid in the same check as the pastor’s salary as long as it is identified on the stub accordingly. It may also be paid separately.

d. Housing exclusion is not reported as part of gross income on the W-2. e. It is the pastorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility to account for the actual amount spent on housing expenses to the IRS (not the church) if requested.

4.

f.

If the total expenses are less than the allowance paid, the pastor must declare the excess as an addition to gross income.

g.

If the total expenses are more than the pre-defined exclusion, they do not qualify for the exclusion.

h.

The housing exclusion may be used by the pastor to pay for most non-personal type expenses incurred in providing or running a home (see list below).

The following items are examples of expenses paid by the pastor that may qualify as Housing Exclusion items, as applicable, and keeping in mind the limits above: a. Housing Expenses such as: down payment on a home, mortgage payments, home equity loan payments (if they are for home related expenses), real estate taxes, property/renters insurance, utilities b. Repairs and Maintenance: Structural repairs, remodeling, yard maintenance and improvements, lawn equipment and repairs, pest control, trash pickup, snow removal, tools, cleaning supplies c. Furniture and Decorating Accessories: Appliances, TV/VCR, stereo, furniture, drapes, pictures, rugs, linens, lamps, etc.

III. Accountable Reimbursement Plans

(Comm. On Equitable Compensation)

A. Policies and Budgeted Amounts 1. All pastors appointed within the Upper New York Annual Conference are entitled to an Accountable Reimbursement Plan (ARP) for professional expenses incurred while performing pastoral duties. 2. A minimum annual Accountable Reimbursement Plan (ARP) budget for a full time pastor shall be $3,500 for a single church appointment and $4,500 for a multi-church appointment. 3. Within the Accountable Reimbursement Plan there shall be a designated amount for the pastor’s continuing education. If the amount is not fully used in the current fiscal year, a pastor may request to roll over the remainder of the ARP Continuing Education amount with an SPRC approved plan for the use of the funds. a. This plan and specific amount is to be reported to the local church/charge conference at year’s end. No more than three successive years of funding or $2,000 (whichever is less) can be rolled over in this manner. This maximum dollar amount should relate to full time clergy. The amount for part time clergy shall be prorated. b. In the event of a pastoral change the roll over amount will be a part of the appointment conversation among the pastor, the churches, and District Superintendent(s) involved. 4. Pastoral appointments of ¾ time, ½ time or ¼ time shall budget and pay an ARP proportionally to this standard for full-time appointments. 5. Congregations are encouraged to budget ARP above the required minimum in consideration of location-specific mileage needs and other factors. B. Accountable Reimbursement Plan Procedures An Accountable Reimbursement Plan (ARP) arrangement is established to reimburse business expenses and should satisfy three conditions: 1. The expense must have a connection to services performed for the church or other connected entity. 2. There must be an adequate accounting of the expense within a reasonable period of time; i.e. date, place, amount/mileage, business purpose provided at least quarterly. 3. Any excess reimbursements or advances to the pastor must be returned to the church within a reasonable period of time; i.e. 120 days, and within 30 days for end of the year expenses. Reimbursements are not considered to be income for the pastor, but professional costs as an expense of the church. Therefore, ARP reimbursement is not included in income reporting to the IRS. The amount budgeted is reported to the Conference as a component of the compensation package, but is not considered part of salary. A pastor’s salary may not be reduced to fund the Accountable Reimbursement Plan.

To implement an ARP, there needs to be a written policy or resolution established annually in advance of payment and approved at Church/Charge Conference. Payment of funds may be done • as a reimbursement of qualified expense, • as payment direct to vendor, or • as an advance with subsequent documentation of expenses; or any combination of these methods. Pastors shall submit a voucher for reimbursement of professional expenses, providing receipts for expenditures and an accounting of mileage where applicable. The specific nature or names related to pastoral visitations shall not be disclosed. The church, in consultation with the pastor, may wish to designate certain items which it elects to have covered by this policy, such as travel, continuing education, books, subscriptions, work supplies, vestments, etc. There may be a cap or dollar amount on the total reimbursable business expenses that will be paid, for example: "The reimbursement amount shall be no more than __________ ." The church may also want to require pre-approvals by the treasurer or SPR/PPR chair of business expenses in excess of $ 500 (or any other amount deemed appropriate). The church may want to set a dollar amount for which receipts must be submitted such as purchases over $25.00. These additional requirements should be included in the policy. C. Qualifed Expenses Pursuant to information provided by the General Council on Finance and Administration, an example of items that are reimbursable under an Accountable Reimbursement Plan includes: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Trips to visit parishioners at hospitals, nursing homes, or the parishioner’s home Business-related meals and mileage Expenses related to meetings of a connectional nature (i.e. District events, conference-level meetings, etc. Expenses for Annual Conference sessions should be budgeted as a separate line item in the church budget for both clergy and lay members, not as part of the ARP.) Supplies for the church office A computer required for church work Vestments worn for worship Church-related books and periodicals Office furnishings and equipment Continuing education and seminars

D. Sample Accountable Reimbursement Policy This is a sample of an accountable reimbursement policy. The specifics of each policy should be reviewed by each church and minister considering their specific concerns. If legal or tax advice is required, the services of a competent professional advisor should be sought. The following resolution is hereby adopted by the church council of XXXXXXXXX Church. It will be effective for the calendar year____ and all future years unless specifically revoked or superseded. The church pastor (or other employee(s)) will be reimbursed for ordinary and necessary business expenses incurred in the performance of his or her responsibilities when he/she substantiates the

amount, business purpose, date, and place of the expense. Confidentiality shall be maintained in the substantiation of pastoral visits and/or counseling. This substantiation must be provided to the chair of the pastor parish relations committee (or church treasurer) within ninety (90) days of incurring the expense. The individual must return to the church any amounts received in excess of the substantiated expenses within one hundred twenty (120) days of receipt. The church will not report any properly substantiated reimbursement payments as income on any Form W-2. __________________________ ________________________ Chair, Church Council SPR/PPR Chairperson

A clergyperson’s District Superintendent must be notified when applying for long term disability benefits and/or seeking Medical Leave status. Until and unless Medical Leave status is granted, the church to which the clergyperson is appointed remains responsible for salary and benefit costs for the pastor. 1. Short Term Disability The Conference carries short term disability and workers compensation coverage on all clergy appointed to local churches as well as lay employees of the church through the multiperil insurance program. Premiums for this benefit are included in the church insurance invoice. While on short term disability, the church remains responsible for all salary and benefit costs associated with the pastor. C. Health Insurance 1. Active Clergy All full time clergy appointed to a local church or as Conference staff are entitled to health insurance and eligible to enroll in the Conference-sponsored health insurance plan. Regardless of enrollment, all charges that have a full time pastor will be billed the blended rate premium. This premium may be split between churches served by the full time pastor. Clergy enrolled and receiving a benefit may be required to pay a Pastor’s Personal Contribution. The amount is set annually by the Conference Board of Pension & Health Benefits. Churches with clergy serving less than full time should include in their salary support packages a “health insurance allowance” in an amount that relates to the blended rate to enable the clergyperson to obtain health insurance or fund a Health Savings Account. 2. Lay Employees Full time lay employees are also eligible to enroll in the health insurance program. The premium billed is based on coverage level; i.e. single, two person or family. The benefits are the same as for a clergyperson. 3. Retired Clergy and Surviving Spouses The Upper New York Conference continues to support part of the cost of providing health insurance to retired clergy through the use of reserve funds. The remaining financial support for the cost of retiree health care is billed to all of the local churches in the conference on a proportional basis. 4.

VI. Other Considerations (Conf. Bd. Of Pension & Health Benefits) Pastors are strongly encouraged to participate in the Social Security system.

On Equitable Compensation) The honorarium for pastor supply shall be $90 for one service and $75 for each additional service, plus mileage reimbursement at the current IRS rate.

VIII. Clergy Moving Policy (Comm. on Equitable Compensation) INTRODUCTION The Conference Moving Coordinator and District Moving Coordinators will be responsible for scheduling moves and securing professional movers to relocate pastors when an appointment change is made for full-time appointments, less than full time appointments where the pastor will live in a parsonage, or pastors retiring from a local church. These Moving Coordinators will function under the guidance of the Commission on Equitable Compensation. FINANCING THE MOVE With the exception of retirement moves, covered later in this document, funding for this program will be accomplished through a cost-sharing arrangement between the Conference and the local church/charge receiving a new appointment. This arrangement will cap the total moving expenses incurred by a receiving local church/charge for one pastoral move at $2,250. It will also allow this expense to be spread out over the course of five years through a conference-managed accrual system. Further, because the total number of contributing local churches/charges in a given year is greater than the number of local churches/charges receiving a new appointment, the program is intended to be selfsustaining. A. Every year for five (5) consecutive years each eligible local church/charge will remit $450 to the Conference Treasurer to be held in escrow in a moving account to cover the local church/charge’s portion of the moving expense. B. Once a local church/charge has accrued a total of $2,250 in this account, its moving account will be considered paid in full. When a new appointment is made, the incoming pastor’s moving

188


2017 Upper New York Conference Journal V. POLICIES AND RESOLUTIONS

1 2 3 4

expenses will be covered by the funds in the receiving local church/charge moving account along with any needed additional funds supplied by the Conference. The process described in A. above will restart at the end of five years if there has been a new appointment within the initial five years (see C).

5 6 7 8 9 10

C. In the event a local church/charge experiences a change of appointment prior to having accrued $2,250 in its conference-held moving account, the move will still be funded under this program. In this case the amount accrued in the receiving local church/charge moving account will be expended and the receiving local church/charge will then be expected to continue to remit $450/year following the move, until the $2,250 moving account total has been reached. To prepare for the next move, the process described in A. above will begin again.

11 12 13

D. Eligible churches/charges are those with one or more full time appointed pastors, whether they reside in a parsonage or not. These churches/charges will remit one fee for each full time pastor with the exception of clergy couples appointed to the same church (one fee).

14 15

E. Eligible churches/charges also include those with pastors appointed part time who live in the church-owned parsonage.

16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42

F. Exceptions not addressed in this policy, changes in eligibility, and special circumstances require the approval of the appointing District Superintendent. For a professional move within the Conference boundaries, the mover engaged by the Conference will submit an invoice directly to the Conference Treasurer. The Conference Treasurer will pay the Mover's total fee. If any additional or special charges are involved, the Conference Treasurer will request payment from the pastor to the Conference. Pastoral Move Guidelines and Limitations A. Clergy Moves: The Conference will pay the full cost of a pastor's move up to 16,000 pounds. The pastor(s) will be responsible for the cost of moving weight that exceeds those limits. 1. The following are covered by this policy: a. Reasonable household furnishings and library. b. The loading and unloading of the truck. c. Taking apart beds, frames, etc., for the move and re-assembling them upon arrival. 2. The policy does NOT provide for moving: a. items considered hobbies or collectibles b. Items related to a separate business c. second cars, recreational vehicles, boats or utility trailers B. Clergy Couples: The Conference will pay the full cost up to 20,000 pounds. C. Seminarians and Local Pastors entering their first appointment: The provisions of the program apply, even if the seminarian is moving from outside the conference.

The Annual Meeting was held at the Central UMC in Endicott, with Tara Barnes, editor of Response Magazine as the key note speaker. Response Magazine is the official publication of the United Methodist Women. We pledged and gathered contributions from individuals, local units, districts to the conference United Methodist Women who in turn, sent $190,076.02 to the National organization to be used in ministry with women, children, and youth throughout the world. We support mission done through organizations such as the Neighborhood Center in Utica, NY, a national affiliated mission within the geographic boundaries of the Upper New York Annual Conference.

Our representative, Valerie Clark, will serve for four years as a member of the PAG (Program Advisory Group) on the national level. Planning and preparation is already underway for our participation in the Assembly to be held in May 2018 in Columbus, Ohio. One of the features of this gathering will be the celebration of the 150th anniversary of United Methodist Women and its predecessor organizations. The United Methodist Women enjoy a long history of leading in the church in mission work, social justice and human rights work, and commitment to spiritual growth. The Legacy Fund has been created to receive donations to be used as a permanent fund to support the mission work and growth of United Methodist Women into the future. We are creating a way to secure our mission outreach and education for generations to come. The Discipline of the United Methodist Church states that each local church shall have an organized unit of United Methodist Women. We would like to encourage each local church, no matter what the size, to have a United Methodist Women local unit to be a part of the mission, education, spiritual growth, and supportive fellowship. We are gathered to be a sisterhood of grace, sharing, and faith. Ilah Sisson Walser Conference President, United Methodist Women

Rev. Vernon C. French Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord? I have heard you calling in the night. I will go, Lord, if you lead me. I will hold your people in my heart. The words of this familiar hymn were the watchword of Vernon French's life, from the moment of his Samuel-like call to ministry as a young man at church camp until his dying breath on March 20, 2017. Early life experiences shaped his values and beliefs and were never forgotten. Raised on a farm outside of Manchester, NH, he was never happier than when seeing things grow – from the family he raised to the churches and Cabinets he served, the youth work he loved, the people he counseled, and the gardens he tended. Displaced from his childhood home by the construction of a World War II airbase, he had a heart for those with nowhere to turn. As the child of a blue-collar, working-class family, he had a strong work ethic and appreciated those who worked hard and gave their all in any endeavor. A product of the Depression and of Methodism, he deemed nothing – and no one – unworthy of saving. The first one in his family to receive a college education, he (and his wife, Barbara) made sure all five of their offspring went to college. Having known firsthand the disruption and destruction that war brought upon his family and the world, he was committed to peacemaking and global understanding. And as a proud Yankee (except for baseball, where his loyalties lay decidedly elsewhere), he was fiercely independent, refusing to toe the party line or bow to popular opinion. He was blessed by the love of two good women: his teenage sweetheart, Barbara (who preceded him in death), and Jeanne, who added so much to the last decade and a half of his life. In their own ways, each helped build a home with him that modeled Christian hospitality by welcoming family, friends and strangers alike. Although he faced the usual allotment of challenges in his almost four score and ten years, his trust in God allowed him to flourish, even during his final years, when mind and body failed bit by bit, synapse by synapse. What seemed to be a slow retreat from life turned out, in hindsight, to mark his waking steps into the timelessness and mystery of eternity. As words and language disappeared, his love of family and friends remained strong and steadfast, giving him great joy and delight in their company. In many regards, it was his finest sermon, spoken without words – eloquent, humble, honest, heartfelt, powerful and as poignant as his life, faith, calling, and witness were all gloriously and wondrously woven into one. What more could any saint in heaven or on earth ask? He died as he lived – confidently, expectantly, trustingly, fearlessly, and lovingly. His favorite hymn resounded one last time: "I have heard you calling in the night. I will go, Lord, if you lead me." We will hold him in our hearts forever. Submitted by Rev. Craig French

He was born in Rochester, Pa., to John L. and Vada (Fink) Love. He grew up and was educated in Freedom, Pa. Jack met Nancie Allan at Jumonville, a summer camp in western Pennsylvania.

Michael served as a member of the Board of Ordained Ministry beginning in 2012 and served as the chair of the board’s Recruitment and Enlistment Division. He also served on the UNY Social Holiness Team and the Mohawk District Leadership Team. He was chair of the Mohawk District Committee on Superintendency. Michael had been selected to lead the Conference licensing school before his passing. Michael was drawn to a life in Christ because Jesus laid down his life for his friends. Even before he was a Christian, he was a wonderful, devoted friend, whose giving heart and insightful mind led him to care for, nurture, and guide all those around him, even before it became his vocation.

Rev. Kenneth Howard Wait The Rev. Kenneth Howard Wait – pastor, educator, and scholar – passed away peacefully Jan. 10, 2017, at his home in Harleysville, Pa. He was 89 years old. Rev. Wait was husband to the late Ruth Doak Wait. Ken was originally from Burnt Hills and a graduate of Ballston Spa High School. He received a bachelor's degree in philosophy at Union College in Schenectady. He went on to Boston University School of Theology, where he was granted his Masters of Divinity and served in many New York Conference parishes. In 1960, he began six years as Protestant and Eastern Orthodox Chaplin at the University of Akron, in Akron, Ohio. While in Akron, he became a founding member of the “American Association of Pastoral Counselors” after receiving his master’s degree in education. In 1966, he moved his family to Middletown to become an associate professor of psychology at Orange County Community College. While at Orange County Community College, he became director of the Office of International Education. In this position, he arranged faculty study seminars abroad and instituted a student exchange program. This gave him the opportunity to travel extensively himself throughout Europe; his favorite destination being Germany. One of his most enjoyable hobbies while at OCCC was reviewing and proofreading psychology textbooks for a major publishing firm. Rev. Wait is survived by three children, Beth Mastro, Mark Wait, and Kaye Maynard; four grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

Patricia Weber Patricia Weber, widow of the Rev. Fred Weber passed away June 4, 2016, in Williamsville. During her adult years, Pat devoted herself to her husband, their church and her career. Those who knew her were impressed by her passion for each of these aspects of her life. Pat was born May 23, 1935, in Buffalo to Harold and Mathilde (nee’ Schwan) O’Leary. She attended School 74, grades 1-8, then Kensington High School, from which she graduated in June 1953. She attended Buffalo State College, where she received degrees in elementary and special education. She graduated with honors. In 1963, she received her master’s degree in education. Another important event occurred while she was at Buffalo State. She met Fred Weber, who also received his degree in education. They were married less than a year after meeting. Fred became a math teacher, while Pat taught at the elementary level for more than 40 years. During those years, she taught not only regular classes, but also children with special needs. The majority of her time, however, was spent teaching in the gifted and talented program in the same district as Fred. Fred was ordained by the Methodist Church in June 1954. His first assignment was to go to Lackawanna to the Roland United Methodist Church to help the congregation in the closing of the church. Instead, he chose to serve as the pastor without any remuneration and did all he could to keep it open until his death in 1997. Pat joined the church in October 1956 and married the Rev. Weber on Dec. 26 that same year.

2017 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal VII. MEMOIRS

From then on, she was his partner in both professions and the consummate minister’s wife. Pat and Fred were devoted to the congregation and the congregation to them. Their routine consisted of teaching all day and fulfilling their church work on evenings and weekends. Pat ran the Sunday school and helped with the annual Thanksgiving feasts and any other special services throughout the year. Pat and Fred traveled an hour each way from their home in Lockport to serve the Roland United Methodist Church, even in the worst of Buffalo winters. For years, they printed the bulletin on a mimeograph machine in their basement. After Fred passed away, Pat found a new home at the Williamsville United Methodist Church, much closer to her house. She also became active in the Twentieth Century Club of Buffalo, even serving as librarian for several years. She was an avid reader and enjoyed spending time in the summer at the Chautauqua Institution, seeing plays at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake and attending performances of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. The couple had few relatives and never had children of their own, but she was known as “Aunt Pat” by the children of her friends. She maintained contacts with many of the GT students who expressed their gratitude for her guidance and generosity. Pat wrote, “I always tried to do right. I loved children and I did all I could for them for 44 years. I am sorry my body couldn’t keep up with my spirit.” A funeral service was held at the Williamsville United Methodist Church, followed by burial alongside her beloved husband at Elmlawn Cemetery in Tonawanda.
