Each week between now and Synod, we are inviting several classes to join together with CRCNA leaders for a time of prayer.
Rev. Dr. Peter Sanlon wrote a kind pastoral letter to members of the PCA as they wrestle with human sexuality issues. Sanlon's approach is to show the lessons learned in the Anglican Church in England, as he contends that they are 10 years ahead of the USA in these matters. Could Sanlon's wisdom also apply to the CRCNA? Perhaps it is time to take notice.
With the complex and consequential decisions Synod 2022 will face, wise leaders must manage the polarity of ensuring good process and arriving at good outcomes.
The CRCNA Council of Delegates met via Zoom on October 13-15, 2021. Highlights from this meeting are attached.
The way we treat each other while we make decisions is just as important to our witness as the decision itself.
Too often at church meetings, corporate prayer feels perfunctory; personal scripture study is assumed; and the spiritual formation of fellow office-bearers is an afterthought to deliberations.
The CRCNA denominational offices have been asked about Religious Exemption requests for those wanting to be exempt from what may be required vaccinations by various institutions.
Please take time to read these encouraging reports and share in our gratitude to God for using the CRC to build his kingdom.
The CRCNA has nearly 200 congregations who worship in a language other than English. How can we best meet their needs and be in community together given the current limitation of our translations?
