Synod 2011 honored Rev. Wesley Granberg-Michaelson, retiring general secretary of the Reformed Church in America, with a “resolution of appreciation.”
Granberg-Michaelson has served in the position since 1994.
The resolution called Granberg-Michaelson “a visionary leader of Christ’s church and a champion of the ecumenical movement,” who “encouraged the glorious cause of Christian unity.”
He was also, the resolution said, “a special friend and encourager of the Christian Reformed Church in North America, fostering a warm relationship between our denominations and bringing us to new levels of collaboration and affection.”
“I’m very moved and give my heartfelt thanks to this synod,” said Granberg-Michaelson. “When I think back, I am so grateful for my relationship with the CRC and how we are growing closer together.”
