Retirement (81498-MH-¶359)

Add new sub-paragraph after current ¶359.1 and re-number the remaining text:
2.  There will be no mandatory retirement age for Local Pastors in small community churches.

Rationale

Small community churches have small memberships.  Pastors appointed to small community churches are often students and do not remain.  This could be alleviated by allowing older persons to continue after the mandatory retirement age of 70.
