Back from General Assembly

The busyness of the week’s schedule and some on-going computer problems kept me from blogging as I would have liked while at the Assembly. Here’s an overview with links to catch you up on some of the news.

Mr. Dan Carrell, a ruling elder from James River Presbytery, served as this year’s Moderator. Mr. Carrell did an excellent job.

Something as seemingly mundane as the review of presbytery minutes led to an interesting debate on theology. I’m thankful to God that the PCA still takes a stand against preaching, teaching, and practicing paedocommunion.

Over the next year the Interchurch Relations Committee will examine the PCA’s membership in the National Associate of Evangelicals and consider whether the denomination should maintain its membership. I’ll perhaps blog more about this later in the year.

Another fascinating issues was the discussion of Insider Movements in foreign missions. The GA soundly rejected any hint of compromising the doctrines of the faith or any practice in missions that leads to syncretism.

Beginning on Monday I’ll post several several articles from guest bloggers on their post-GA reflections.

I pray that the Lord blesses you richly on his day. “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Exod. 20:8).
