In light of the various narratives about why people are leaving or should leave the Presbyterian Church (USA), I recently posed the question, Why do you choose to stay in the Presbyterian Church (USA)? Here is one more person sharing why they are staying in the Presbyterian Church (USA) . . .
Why do you choose to stay in the Presbyterian Church (USA)?:
I appreciate our form of governance that involves significantly the laity in our churches, Presbyteries and GA. I appreciate the education, training and process that we have for ordaining our pastors. Most importantly, I appreciate the freedom of belief that I have despite being in a denominational structure. And finally, with all of the gut wrenching dialogue that has occurred with churches leaving the PC(USA), we will be stronger and are stronger as a result of our soul searching and prayer.
