Organization structure of CRCNA SPACT Report agenda 2014

There is a lengthy and thorough report of this committee. At the end of the agenda item there is a request for input which I assume to be for synod delegates to complete. I wonder if those of us in the pew can participate in this? Do we need a new post for this? It is a complicated report yet of great importance to the CRCNA. Harry Boessenkool

Confessional Commitments and Academic Freedom

The church has always had a strong commitment to Christian education. This ecclesiastical commitment remains critical today. In particular, the historic creeds and Reformed confessions of the CRCNA give the college and its faculty a well-articulated faith context in which to work.

Advisers at Synod

All advisers are asked to remember their role at synod — which is to help the delegates from the classes and churches to make decisions for the whole CRC. Synod 2014 will consider a report that more clearly defines these advisers and their roles.

We Are the Church Together

I’m glad that in June the CRC and RCA Synods are meeting at the same time in Pella, Iowa, and worshiping together from the same hymnal. I welcome the joint recommendation to both of our synods to acknowledge how much we have in common...

The Ugly, the Bad, and the Good about Synod

When I think about the things that make me impatient with synod, I confess to the sin of cynicism. (Is cynicism de facto a sin? I’ve come to think so. Christians just don’t get to do gratuitous negativity.) On the other hand, when I’m feeling good about a particular synod, and someone snidely says to me, “Yeah, but what did they actually ACCOMPLISH?” I feel deflated...
