Synod president Rev. Joel Boot appointed Rev. Karl House, Classis Quinte, as the sergeant at arms. His role is to exercise some “church discipline” by calling delegates back to the meeting when they extend coffee breaks beyond the appointed times.

To help in this daunting duty, Boot presented House with a shepherd’s staff. House quipped: “In line with this gift I shouldn’t be called sergeant at arms. I would prefer to be called ‘shepherd with an attitude.’”
