This week I am blogging from the Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly
Linda Valentine, the Executive Director of the Presbyterian Mission Agency, was re-elected to a third term by an overwhelming voice vote.
She has a big job - she is essentially the chief executive of the denomination's 'doing things' arm.
In the past, the election of the Executive Director has been very contentious - in the '90s an Exec was unseated by a floor nominee, even though the sitting Exec was the official nominee.
Linda Valentine's easy re-election is a good sign of renewed trust in the central agencies of the church.
