How A Presbyterian Church In Another Country Handles Their Election For Moderator

Leave a comment

Although more theologically akin to the Uniting Church, the Presbyterian Church (USA) shares a similar governmental structure to the Presbyterian Church of Australia.
Steve Salyards provides his usual thorough and insightful examination of the nominees and election of the Moderator (and deputy Moderator) of this year’s General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) here.
Of interest is the background booklet on Candidates for the office.
If you ask about this sort of material in Australia you might get met with the sort of uncomprehending stare that wonders why on earth you might want it.
Apparently if you really want to know who the nominees are, what skills they have, and what sort of calling they sense about three years representing the Presbyterian Church of Australia, you should go out and discover it for yourself.
Otherwise, shouldn’t you just know?
