I've just returned from the Wee Kirk conference at Montreat. Over 280 Presbyterian ministers, CLPs, elders and deacons spent a few days in worship, in workshops, and just enjoying the time at Montreat.
Montreat in October is gorgeous, and the temperatures are comfortable during the day, and nicely cool at night. All in all, a great place for a gathering of small steeple leaders to connect, discuss, and commiserate.
There is a movement amongst small churches to band together, to show where the power really is in the church. I pray that this occurs sooner than later, and that this may help renew the PCUSA to faithfulness.
And so it goes ....
