21 Jan Church Governance
I have to admit that I do not get all that inspired about thinking in terms of church governance. But I have learned the hard way that if you don’t pay attention to the values of healthy church function, you often reap a whirlwind of unnecessary conflict.
My church is in the process of evaluating our By-Laws. But even more than that, we are looking at the values behind the document.
The over-riding theme of the approach, and what I am trying to teach my church is this: WE SEEK RELATIONAL SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS AND NOT POLITICAL ONES.
I would love your feedback.
