Most of our time in class was spent in a lively discussion of the currently ongoing Elders review of our church constitution and specifically about our church covenant. I hope I succeeded in facilitating an open discussion where all feedback on the topic and process was welcome. My own views on the topic of membership are well summarized in a blog post last August. You can click this link to read that post by David Mathis entitled "Why Join a Church?" Please feel free to respond here to any of these issues. Thanks to all for a lively, honest discussion in class Sunday.
