Even though I am in a very different ministry context, I am learning a lot through your sharing. Thanks for the transparency in this, and my prayers are with you through this difficult process.


Luke 11:46 Jesus replied, “And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them."
Sometimes I think this is how church members see the Presbytery, and sometimes they are right, but not always. I know there is no malice intended from the Presbytery end, but they are easy to demonize when the going gets tough.

The pro and con thing made me laugh. Our consultant told us that the pastors and the elders have competing visions. Is it a lack of ability on the pastors part to get others on board with our vision, or do the pastors need to get on board with the elders' vision? We definitely have different points of view from our members, and it shouldn't surprise me when we see it play out, but it does surprise me all the same. I think it's funny. I hope you are able to laugh at some of this.

If you find those young people who want to preserve a 1950's style church with nothing to offer their kids, will you let me know if they have any relatives in Memphis.
Peace of Christ,

Excellent post. It makes me realize the energy of words and pictures. I learn a lot, thank you! Wish you make a further progress in the future.
