About a month ago we received an email from our Stated Clerk with the 3 Synodical Study Committee reports attached to it. The email said to discuss the questions at the council or elders meetings and then email the committees if any issues or questions arise (or write an overture if we wished).
We decided to tackle one of these reports before our next meeting and each committed to reading through the report on Pastoral Guidance regarding Same-Sex Marriage.
My question is, how do you lead discussions on these reports in your meetings? Is it: agree/disagree? What do you like/what don't you like? How do we use this?
Any past experience you have will be appreciated!
