SMU High Hats The Methodists


SMU has gone all unitary executive on the Methodist Church.

Opponents of the Bush Library locating at SMU are pressing for Church’s regional body, the Jurisdictional Conference, to block the expected Library. But the student paper says the University feels it has “all the permission they need” to build.

The Church’s Mission Council has signed off on the Library, but by the Church web site makes the Council a subordinate body to the Conference, acting between Conference meetings:

“The Mission Council is the governing body of the South Central Jurisdiction between Jurisdictional Conference sessions. The Council meets annually to discuss and make decisions regarding the operations of the Jurisdiction.
