With recent developments within the Presbyterian Church and the ever popular desire for schism within the church growing stronger I was struck with the question, “Does being in a demomination really help.” In my heart of hearts I know it does. I appreacite the connectional nature of the church even when it seems that it is a myth. I also am glad to have a higher governing body that helps negotiate and oversee our pastoral relastionships. But what does the world get out of our larger church bodies?
Listen to the song below and pay attention to 2:38 in the time stamp. While some fo the song may be politically and theologically counter to your viewpoint I think that that at 2:38 the spoken words have a deep truth to them. What do you think? What does this world need? Maybe the best thing we can do is just get out of the way!
