This news item in the Biblical Recorder sums up my feelings on this very well. Looks like it’s time to take this issue to the convention for a floor vote.
These type of quotas are hardly ever a good thing. If most agree with you, then elect leaders who agree. That would be the prudent thing to do.
Until and unless you can motivate the small church folks to go to the convention in representative numbers, there’s not a snowball’s chance that anything’s going to change in this regard. And, frankly, if they won’t go, they shouldn’t expect change.
I don’t buy inability to attend for most of the reasons I’ve heard. I’ve been to two conventions since I retired, and if Peg and I can afford it, then I think a representative sample of small church messengers could, too. Since they apparently choose not to attend, I don’t think the small church “contingent” has a lot to complain about.
If the small church members were in a majority at the convention, and the power players rode roughshod over them, you’d have a LOT to talk about, but I don’t see that happening.
