A Fine Day at Presbytery

Here are two photos from today's Missouri Union Presbytery meeting. Mike Kruse (GAC, Kruse Kronicle) was there, along with John Williams (Synod of Mid America Executive) and John Detterick (GAC Executive Director, via phone link) were there and spoke effectively on the recent GAC budget, mission plan, and layoffs.


Two bloggers meet at Presbytery -- A dangerous combination...


Mike chats with two presbyters after the GAC presentation

I'll post more later; I need to eat and head to Session for another two hours of doing it decently and in order.

One of the great joys in serving on my congregation's Candidate Care Committee is participating in the processes of helping members clarify their calls from God. One of our inquirers was examined for candidacy at Presbytery, and is now a candidate. He will be doing an internship over the summer in the Dominican Republic and a pastoral internship this coming academic year. He will also complete his final year at Princeton.

I gave a report to Session on the Presbytery meeting and especially the changes taking place in our denomination. Tomorrow I will try and summarize my impressions.

Fun to see the pictures of you and Mike Kruse. Thanks, Denis!

And the exciting thing is that after these pictures the camera still works!

hehehe

If you want the hi-res versions of the images, let me know. The others were of our executive presbyter, John Williams, and you at the podium.

If I had my wits about me, I would have taken a photo of the phone link device, and captioned it "John Detterick"
