Pan-Methodist Commission (80147-IC-¶2403.2)

Amend ¶2403.2 as follows:
¶2403
2. Commission on Pan-Methodist Cooperation and Union—Given the relationship and shared history of the denominations of the Wesleyan tradition in America, there shall be a Commission on Pan-Methodist Cooperation and Union established jointly among The African Methodist Episcopal Church, The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, the African Union Methodist Protestant Church, The Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, the Union American Methodist Episcopal Church, and The United Methodist Church.

Rationale

This change will recognize in UM polity the acceptance of these historic members of the Methodist family into the Commission on Pan-Methodist Cooperation and Union.
