Do Ministers Vote in Council Meetings?

I'm getting mixed answers here on the Network, and it sounds like this may be more of pertinent in Canada with its rules for non-profit organizations. I may have missed it, but I do not see a line in Church Order that explicitly says whether ministers may or may not vote.

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?

What to do when you have been abused by a pastor?

I am writing you anonymously for good reason. Please call me "Karen" and use the P.O. Box I have supplied. I have been sexually abused by a pastor. I don't want to get into the details of him doing this to me right now. I'm probably to blame too. But I feel so cheap, so used, and so depressed. I don't think I can keep living with this without doing something about it. I don't know where to turn -- if and when I do get up the courage. Can you help?
