Authenticity of the Holy Bible

There were many more historical accounts written about and around the time of Jesus, how is it that only a select few made it through the "... given by inspiration of God ..." filter, as expressly stated in 2 Timothy 3:16. What disqualified other anecdotes and writings?

Question on Hebrews 4?

Does anyone else see Hebrews 4 concerning our rest as anything else than a reference to the rest we will have at the end? What do you all think this passage of scripture says?

Training/safety programs for ministering to at-risk population?

Our church is in the planning stages of forming a non-profit organization to minister to homeless in our community. We will take up residence at a local motel. We need to formulate a training program for our volunteers. We also need to develop a safety policies. Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, does anyone have access to share an existing program fir either area with us? We would use as a reference and tailor to our specific ministry. Thanks!

What are best practices for conducting a Congregational Meeting dealing with controversial issues?

I am a first term elder and council clerk who is now going to be partly responsible for guiding discussion and voting on a few "hot button" issues - selling a parsonage in order to fund new ministries and a renovation/addition, as well as gathering perspectives now and voting in May on building a small barrier-free addition to our church. Do those of you who are experienced in conducting and fielding questions in this type of situation have any hints for keeping the discussion on a helpful track, or any words of wisdom on what to say and what to avoid? I am starting to sweat!
