My question referencing section eight of the Trusts of Model Deed
the minister of such congregation shall have the right to preside as Chairman at all meetings of the Trustees...;
was not simply rhetorical.
Other than as the person requesting the ruling, I am no more affected than any other settled order of ministry because we are all affected. There are inalienable rights and responsibilities that come with being settled order of ministry, one of which is the right to preside as Chair of the Board of Trustees, of which it makes as much sense to question as to question whether an order of ministry is ordained.
The Judicial Committee Executive gave no objection to the grounds for appeal in refusing my appeal, with implication that if the appellant had status there was sufficient basis to hear the appeal.
Justice delayed is justice denied.
I expect an answer...if, as Chair of the Board of Trustees, I am not
"directly affected", who is?
