|If you are a minister, elder or teacher in a congregation of Churches of Christ and would be interested in participating in a moderated email discussion of "A Christian Affirmation" beginning on or about July 15, 2005, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information, which will not be shared with any other organization for any purpose:|
|1) Your name
2) The name and location (city, state) of the local congregation of which you are an active member
3) Your role in this congregation (minister, elder, or teacher)
We propose to limit the
participants in this online conversation to ministers, elders, and teachers
not because we do not value the perspectives of others but so that we
might engage in a conversation that is (1) manageable in scope and (2)
of most immediate benefit to our churches. Participants should be prepared
to discuss contested questions openly and substantively without engaging
in personal attack. A pledge to abide by such guidelines will be a condition
for participating in the discussion.
