Elders' Meetings That Work

My wife, the faithful and constant helper, sent me this link from Jim Eliff. We had a great meeting last night, and so this was affirming in a lot of ways. You might not agree with everything that's recommended here, but it's good food for thought. Read the entire post here.

Here are his 7 headings:

1. Plan for meeting together more often and for a longer period of time.
2. Challenge each other spiritually.
3. Discuss the state of the flock.
4. Have an agenda.
5. Actually pray for individuals and issues being faced.
6. Study together toward a unified position on difficult issues.
7. Make these meetings non-optional.

Greetings from Kuwait! My son lived in Cayman for a year as a DJ at a local radio station. We visited there for two very hot weeks and loved it. We attended a large Baptist church, although I do not recall the name. I will never forget Stingray Island and being surrounded by stingrays of various sizes! What a great God we serve! Blessings on you and your ministy brother. Keep looking up!

Hey brother,

Thanks for dropping the note. I'm glad you had a great time in Cayman. it's a beautiful place with an even more beautiful people. I'm guessing that you were probably at First Baptist Church. We'd love to have you here again some time. The Lord bless you and keep you!
