Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, Maryland had a very important meeting with its members this past Sunday night. A transcript has been made public at this website. I'd encourage you to read it.
Joshua and the pastors have a pulse on the issues. They are doing a good job. I appreciate the accountability they are bringing to C.J. and the Board and I respect the humility they are demonstrating by allowing for more involvement by the congregation.
I wish the SGM Board would follow the example of the CLC pastors in their openness, approachability, humility, and desire for accountability. I only took exception to Grant’s comments regarding judging. Godly judgments can include motives, which I have done with C.J. or Dave, when there is an abundance of evidence that clearly reveals their hearts. The biblical writers constantly address the heart and confront motives.
James 4:1-3 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
