Why This Church? Congregational Church Government

church meeting

"What would it look like if our gathering included discernment together on issues of politics, or immigration, or racism, or homophobia, or anti-Semitism, or Islamophobia? Not with a view to necessarily all agreeing at the end of it, but with an intent to hear from one another, and in doing so to hear from Christ himself.

"What would it look like if we came to church meetings in humility, holding our convictions lightly, willing to be challenged and to change, rather than to argue our corner or defend our position?

"What if church meetings became the cradle for justice and inclusion in our community?"

Simon continues our Communion series of sermons looking at different aspects of what it means to be a Baptist Church. In today's sermon he looks at the practice of Church Meetings, and asks how they can be cradles of inclusion and justice, rather than just places where we take governance decisions.
