A Note from Pastor Jerry!
That was a lotta watta!
I am back from Denver, Colorado! While it rained a lot here, Colorado seemed to get a fair amount, too. I was not prepared. I decided not to pack even a light coat or a hoodie! Needless to say, I managed to get drenched walking from the 16th street shuttle to the hotel with my carry-on bag on wheels, in tow.
The North American Convention & General Assembly of the Church of God was held over 4 days. It was a gathering of Church of God leaders, both pastors and lay-delegates, from all around the U.S. & Canada. We had some steep rocks to climb together on "justice" and "race," tough topics for tough times. And, all during GAY PRIDE week in downtown Denver! Quite an interesting experience, to say the least. I will say this, we can't close our eyes to the things that are true and relevant, biblical and holy, in addressing the issues that are dominating our culture.
We came away with 1 resolution; to set up a research commission to see how the Church of God has changed from it's original "Unity" moorings of the 1890's, and report on what it finds to be true about our history at the 2023 GA. Just as any other Christian movement or denomination can not ignore the bigger picture of history and what has taken place in our own camp, frank discussions need to happen in each congregation across the Church of God. How does the gospel impact our perspective on "race" & "justice?" What do we believe about the gospels ability to unite? We cannot mirror the secular culture. We must reflect the heart of Jesus.
The Church of God Reformation Movement (Anderson, IN) has some history that nobody talks about. In the present, we have a white church and a black church; divided and struggling to get united. My hope is that in the remaining years of my life time we will see a reuniting of leadership under one banner...God's Church.
