“If we can vote “yes” for unity in San Antonio, the institution functions as it should. We’ve had a long conversation, several generations, we’ve come together, we’re supporting women. And I think looking around at the larger church, over 60% of the church is women, except in the leadership where it’s mostly dominated by men. And we see that, while patriarchy has been a part of many cultures for centuries, that’s changing: more and more women are becoming leaders around the world, and it’s time for the Adventist church to recognize that shift. … Let’s go to the General Conference, let’s have a vote, let’s say “yes” for unity, let’s move forward as a unified Adventist family.”
