PresbyMeme 5

Adam tagged me… so here we go:

The rules are pretty basic:

  1. In about 25 words each, answer the following five questions;
  2. Tag five Presbyterian bloggers and send them a note to let them know they were tagged;
  3. Be sure to link or send a trackback to this post

So I will take my stab at contributing to this PresbyMeme.

1. What is your earliest memory of being distinctly Presbyterian?

General Assembly 2000.  It was there I began to understand the distinctiveness of Presbyterian theology/polity.

2. On what issue/question should the PC(USA) spend LESS energy and time?
This one is easy: The Washington Office and the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy.  The Washington Office is irrelevant and no one cares what the PC(USA) thinks and ACSWP spends thousands of dollars writing papers that are dry, boring, arrogant, and irrelevant.  Oh, no one reads them.

3. On what issue/question should the PC(USA) spend MORE energy and time?
New Church Development.  We have a ton of churches that no one is going to start going to – so we need to plant new ones, even if they’re right near existing PC(USA) churches.

4. If you could have the PC(USA) focus on one passage of scripture for an entire year, what would it be?
Matthew 7:24-27 (Building your foundation on the rock).  Jesus is the one who makes our ministry effective, but if we forget he’s our foundation it’s made considerably more difficult.

5. If the PC(USA) were an animal what would it be and why?

The PC(USA) is talbot (an extinct dog).  The PC(USA) is much loved and served a purpose, but is looking at an increasingly post-denominational age.

I’ll tag: Chris, Mike, Eileen, Hunter, Frank,

    You can’t tag me for this meme – I’m not Presbyterian! (honestly, didn’t mean it to rhyhm). But I’m not so :-p I married one, yes, but I have not converted 😉 (although I’m not sure what I am)
