I don't really care to toot my own horn, but ship date for my newly written CRC Church Order (according to Faith Alive Resources) is January 10. The book features a treatment of each article of our Church Order—half of it exposition, being theological, historical or practical in nature, the other half of it real life questions and answers that I have received and written over many years of work at Calvin Theological Seminary. It just strikes me that this book might be good fodder for this Church Order Forum. I would appreciate a discussion of any of it. I have broad enough shoulders to entertain hefty criticism of the negative kind and will receive with humility any favorable reactions. All that is not important. What is important is that we as members of the CRCNA learn once again what the basics of our church government are and how they function in our communities. So let me hear from you in the New Year after you order the book at Faith Alive. Thanks. I look forward to many discussions here. Have a great year of our Lord, 2011.
