Not much to talk about today ...

Its been a slow day, did some errands, and played around with Visual Basic 2008 for a while. I used to program in Basic in college, mainly first year programming, but Basic over the years has been added to and modified by Micro$oft so that its now a fully featured language that can do a lot more than print Hello World on an old teleprinter.

So I checked today's mail, and the latest issue of the Presbyterian Outlook arrived. Lots of reader mail about the 218th GA, the new PCUSA's Stated Clerk and its legal eagle went over what changed with the votes at GA ... laying out what AI's were superceded, and what GAPJC decisions may no longer be correct. Those Letter to the Editor and the Stated Clerk's article are available on line for perusal if you don't get the print edition. Based on what the people in the pews are saying, and then what's coming out of Louisville, its going to be an interesting 2 years, that's for sure.

However, in that same print edition was an article by Jerry Andrews that was in a Point/Counterpoint type of juxtaposition with an article from Susan Andrews (no relation). Jerry states in that article much of what has been said by center-conservative/conservative Presbyterian bloggers. I urge you to read it if you can.

Update: The Outlook has finally posted that article online:
Some Words. They have it listed under 'Presbyterian Heritage Articles'. If the move of the PCUSA away from Biblical standards is part of 'Presbyterian Heritage', then I wonder what part of Presbyterianism it is the heritage of, surely none that Calvin or Knox would recognize.
