    That is a good post by David Lowrie. I hope he is elected. But that bureaucracy isn’t going to change. It is too steeped in its “good ole boy” way of doing things, and too narrow and exclusive to be open to new ideas and new people. Most of its churches are not interested enough to send messengers, and they are obviously losing interest in sending their money. Let it die, and see what emerges from what’s left.

    You may be right. We might be best served “to let it die”. However, for me “it” is more than an institution, organization or convention. It is a dream of cooperation and networking. It is a heritage that has touched and blessed my life. I fear I may be too sentimental and out of touch, but I believe this dream of Kingdom cooperation can live in our world today, but it must be sustained by purposeful actions, communication, vision, and trust.

    Only God knows what the outcome will be. I am working and praying for a positive one. It is true that bureaucracy is the name of the game but remember bureaucracy boils down to people. The gospel teaches us that people can change and do change under the influence of His Spirit. Let’ s not give up the power of the supernatural in our dreams of tomorrow.

    Thank you for your thoughts. They struck a cord with me
