The addition of a "Fourth Office" . . .

There are two overtures that have been sent to the 217th General Assembly (2006) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) . Both Mission Presbytery and Shenandoah Presbytery have sent overtures to that present the creation of “a fourth office” for ordination.

How do you feel about the addition of a fourth office. Do you think these or any combination of them has a chance of passing? If yes, why? If no, why not? What are the advantages of a fourth office? What, if any, are the disadvantages?

For more Information your can download pdf file of both overtures:
Mission Presbytery—Overture #16-Minister of Christian Education; and
Shenandoah Presbytery—Overture #31—Educating Elder.

The Association of Presbyterian Church Educators also has additional information.

Discussion topic from Quotidian Grace

Quotidian Grace wrote:

At my church we planned an in-depth study of the PUP [Peace, Unity, & Purity] report which is being conducted in one of our Sunday School classes. We began the class two week's ago. I would like to know what other churches are doing this spring to encourage study and discussion of the PUP. Are they doing it in Sunday School or another time? Who is attending? What resources are they using? Is it being led by lay people or clergy? What is the goal of the study? How is the report being received?

Happy One Week and a Day Anniversary!!!

Here we are a week into our Preby Web Ring and we already have 16 members!!! That is a great start and I hope that our numbers will continue to increase. If you have Preby and Presby-Sympathists Blogging friends who are not members, extend them an invite. In my opinion the more the merrier.

I have greatly enjoyed creating, updating, and posting thus far, but I was hoping that some of you might be interested in sharing in the fun. If anyone one is interested in sharing the duties of regularly posting ideas, topics for discussions, or whatever you feel called to write, I would be VERY willing to add you to Presbyterian Bloggers team members. If you are interested send me an email and I will add you to the list.

Martin Luther King, Jr. & Race Relations Sunday

Sorry for the short hiatus in posting but I have been under the weather the past few day.

With Martin Luther King, Jr. Day next week and Race Relations Sunday on February 12 the PC (USA) web site has posted resources for both of these observances. Does your congregation recognize either of these days? If so how? And if no, why do you thing they have chosen not to do so?
