What if we thought of ourselves more organically and a little less organizationally? What if the skills we expected in a leader included the skills of leading a meeting to maximize spiritual discernment, while giving less importance to Robert's Rules?
Data on CRC congregations and pastors from the Third Wave Report continues to nag at me. It appears that routine feedback to pastors from their councils is a very valuable tool! So, wouldn't you think we'd be doing that as one of our "disciplines"?
I was browsing in the "Third Wave Report." And one interesting item noted is that when pastors set up regular systems for council to give feedback to the pastor on preaching, this has a positive affect on "pastoral excellence."
