Kudos to Mark Stephenson and the entire team who assembled the guidelines for requesting a leave of absence for pastors with mental health issues.

This document/toolkit will serve Pastors, councils, and churches well.

Thank you immensely,

I think it is the same reason farmers and dairymen get subsidies as well as large oil companies.  They simply could not make a profit without it.



You have expressed my sentiments exactly.  We should not define ecclessiastical so that it excludes "political" expreession on clearly stated Scriptural or confessional topics.  I pray that synod will keep the wisdom of your comment s in mind.

Amen Nick!  Preach it loud and clear.  Hopefully synod will find its way to incorporate your wisdom in their guidelines.


We want to hear from you.
