I’d be willing to bet a lot that even if the study doesn’t pass (it will be close), the recommendations will, on the basis of the simple majority. They almost certainly have that simple majority.

      • Someone did point out that we require a 2/3 vote to call a pastor, so why wouldn’t we require the same for changes made to the ministry policies. It makes sense to me.
