    May Christians vote for a presidential candidate who denies the Trinity?

    SInce Christians could vote for a JEw or a Hindu or a Muslim for PResident of the US.... (should one ever be nominated)

    Minute for Mission?

    To be honest I think this was a strategic error. I think it will lead to fewer readings of Minutes for Mission in 2021. If all you have to do is grab a book and flipto a page it is simpler to get it done than having to go to a website and choose which one to read, and possibly have to print it...

    Donations

    What Bette describes is in fact the cleanest way to do it. In our congregation people wanting to donate the cost simply sign the back of the cheque and it gets put in the next deposit (which I suppose means in clearing the money leaves and then re=enters the church account?) Or some people...

    The Great Reset

    That alone is a good reason to think the REset is a good idea....

    US Election result?

    I think the Beer Hall Putsch in Munich was better planned than that. NOt any more successful but bette planned

    The Great Reset

    Thing is, we in the church preach a Great Reset on a regular basis. We sometimes call it the Jubilee Year, sometimes the Day of the Lord, sometimes the Peaceable Kingdom, sometimes the Reign of God. One can not, IMO, look at the current economic and social realities and not see that the...

    US Election result?

    That is the Reign of God yes. Converting everyone to one religious perspective does not create the Reign of God. Historically speaking, the Christian world has shown itself remarkably bad at ending hunger and creating a peaceful just society. SO maybe we are missing something thus far?

    Flu shot shortage?

    THat is the same in Alberta. For the Pharmacy to get paid they had to send in the AHC number -- I know because they entered one child's birthdate wrong and it got kicked back to them so they phoned us to confirm the birthdate

    Flu shot shortage?

    HAve not heard of any issues around here. And at our pharmacy we didn't even neeed to prebook -- they were doing them as walk-ins

    Anyone else remember Wardair?

    I certainly remember WardAir. Never flew on them though.

    Capitalism or Socialism?

    In the end, neither option presented in the OP, nor any other form of Utopia described by humanity over the centuries, fully describes (IMO) the Kingdom of God preached by Jesus, shared in the Messianic hopes of the Jewish Scriptures, and described in the Revelation of John. Realistically the...

    Capitalism or Socialism?

    Depends on your perspective. If your family is one of the ones driven into poverty and then into slavery by Joseph's system yes he is a "bad guy". If you are Pharaoh he is a wonderful steward. Someone living by what Scripture later reveals as God's hope for the world (both in Torah and in the...

    If my church had 1/2 million it should..........

    In the quote you gave it says NOTHING about Jesus saying verses. It has Jesus saying "these words". The narration mentions which book/scroll he is reading from, and suggests that there is a way of marking what the assigned text for the day was (it appears Judaism of the time ma have had its own...

    If my church had 1/2 million it should..........

    Good advice here. Technically there is no longer such a thing as a JNAC but your cogregation should be encouraged to be developing a Ling Faith Story for posting on ChurchHub. Thsi is something to do and keep up to date all the time, not just when you are in search mode. That process should...
