The specific issues, which include the ordination of women women and withdrawal from the Episcopal Diocese of California California and Ihe national church body, are not being debated, committee members say. Their only demand is thai the issues be submitted to the entire church membership for a vote. ' The church's rector, Ihe Rev. Graham Lesser, the wardens and vestry members originally maintained that they alone had Ihe authority to vote on the issues. However, since the committee sought- legal recourse, the vestry . members have agreed lo a congregational vote.
