The Zion Godsend Task Force met April 10 to continue to review options for both investment and distribution of the proceeds of the Godsend. Initial thinking is that the proceeds are best used if the inflation adjusted initial proceeds are maintained in perpetuity.
Feedback received during Lenten Listening sessions was appreciated and beneficial in addressing a strategy which best reflects the mission of POP.
Following creation of a framework for possible recommendations of both investment strategies and distribution approaches, a second round of focus groups will be conducted to obtain further congregation feed-back.
Initially, it was anticipated that those sessions could be completed and recommendations made to the congregation during the June Congregational meeting. That may still be possible, but since this is such an importation decision for the congregation, June may be impossible and an additional congregation meeting necessary.
