Updated: D025 from the House of Bishops gallery

After table conversation, the House of Bishops had a lengthy debate about an amendment on the Resolution D025. This amendment passed and replaces the original sixth Resolve.
Here is the new text:

'Resolved that this 76th General Convention affirm that God has called and may call such individuals to any ordained ministry within TEC and that God's call to the ministry is a mystery which the Church attempts to discern for all people through our discernment processes acting in accordance with the Constitution and Canons of the Episcopal Church.'

Now the House is discussing the full resolution again. There will be a roll call when they get to the vote.

This is good, right? [i.e., I don't see any substantive change in the amendment?]

JCF, legislatively-challenged...
