SILVER SPRING, Md. — In a rare potluck-related church policy statement, the General Conference has issued strict orders to Seventh-day Adventist churches worldwide regarding their potluck dish selections. Pastors and senior potluck coordinators the world over have been instructed that potlucks must feature exactly 28 different dishes.
“Don’t think that just because we happen to be the Seventh-day Adventist Church you can get away with featuring just seven different dishes,’ said GC Director of Potluck Affairs, Tony Glut. “Our love affair with the number seven in no way gives us the right to fall short of our high standards for potluck dish variation.”
Glut added that church leaders had no objection to there being seven different varieties of Special K Loaf available at any given church potluck but that this impressive achievement in no way gave local congregations permission to “phone in big picture potluck responsibilities.”
He added a special note of caution to “lax congregations” that might be tempted to think that creating a haystack bar with 28 different toppings in some way fulfills the 28-dish GC potluck requirement. “Don’t even think about cutting corners like that,” said Tony.
