Pastor’s Council Notes

The November meeting of the Pastor’s Council reviewed events in late October and early November. We reviewed the pattern of Holy Supper services: Informal Family, Cairnwood Village, and Cathedral interim and quarterly. A council member raised a concern heard about why the Lessons and Carols service this Sunday will include lay men and women readers. I shared with the council a 2013 Bryn Athyn Post article I wrote on the subject that quoted Divine Providence 171-172 and Deuteronomy 6:6-9. One person raised an expressed desire that we have more good, old-fashioned doctrinal sermons and another raised concerns about preparations being made for the 2020 GC Assembly that Bryn Athyn Church has offered to host.
