Should We Create a Sub-Forum for Each Classis?

  97 views

Fernando's comment about a discussion forum on his classis website got me thinking...

Should we create sub-forums here (within this main one) for each classis? That way pastors, church leaders, and members within each classis could discuss what's happening in their neck of the woods, ministry opportunities, collaboration between churches, and more. Without having to set it up themselves.

Any interest in this?

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

Good idea. Might help readers to select areas of interest for them to post or respond to (other than about classis websites). Although they could always select the "New Forum Topic" button.

Perhaps this would be good but I wouldn't want it to replace possible conversations between those at the Classis level.

Excellent suggestion. About time CRC members started talking to each other and this might be a start.

An effective way to communicate is to have a meeting where people actually meet face to face. This naturally limits the conversation (only one person can talk at the same time and there is a 2-3 hr limit for the meeting).

There are hundreds of ways to communicate electronically, and each type has its pros and cons.

I now get newsletters, e-mail news and magazines by e-mail. They seem to get larger by the issue. (there is no artificial limit to its size anymore).  Now each organization takes interesting news from others with the result that one story sometimes takes space in 10 different e-news articles.

That is great for the editors - just check contents and english - no limit on length anymore.

oops: the reader - what is the reader supposed to do? And here is the rub.. the reader has only so much time in the day to read electronic material. The more one article takes the less there is time for another. If one web site takes all the time, there is less time for another.

So the reader has to pick and choose and ignore a percentage of what is provided, with this percentage growing every week as more resources and web sites gets created.

So before more information is prepared and sent, be sure that sufficient readers are interested and would like to get or find the new? information.

Sounds like a good idea. But please integrate it with this site. I have learned so much from various topic's here. I think it's helpful for people to see our church and it's many faucets.

Thanks
