Each year, some elders of Faith Church are sent to what is known as the "General Assembly" of the EPC. The GA (for short) is the collection of all teaching elders (pastors) and ruling elders sent as delagates to our once-a-year national meeting.
This year, Gwynn Blair and I (along with my family) attended the GA in Baton Rouge, LA.
While some may view this kind of event as boring or unnecessary, Presbyterians have a long heritage of "connectionalism" that views engagement with our brothers and sisters in Christ as necessary and essential work.
Almost every year, some significant events take place including the commissioning of missionaries, theological considersations and, every once in a blue moon, (including this year!) a political statement is made!
Those interested in my personal report from the 32nd Annual General Assembly of the EPC can read it here on my blog.
