General Conference in 2012 tasked the General Board of Church and Society with conducting listening sessions across the connection. From these listening sessions, Church and Society concluded that the Social Principles needed to be more theologically grounded, more globally relevant, and more succinct. At the 2016 General Conference, Church and Society was further tasked with bringing revised Social Principles to the 2020 General Conference.
The Social Principles revision has been underway for two quadrennia. Born out of a request from General Conference, the General Board of Church and Society has undertaken the global project, and looks forward to presenting a final draft to General Conference 2020 for consideration.
