Too late GS. What we have to do now is clean up after the mess we made.
Btw Did not the Founding Fathers and their friends interfere with the quote, "red Indians" and their way of life (in a foreign land at that time)?
Chuck, To my knowledge, I never received your Oct 16, 2008 letter renouncing your licensure. This is the first that I have heard of it. And this is the first that I have become aware that you were even thinking of separating from the PNW or the FGBC. Iâ€™m surprised that your renunciation or the letter did not come up at our meeting in The Dalles. Also, I am puzzled, as to why if you renounced your ministerial credentials, have you been paying your dues? As you know, the FGBC is a Fellowship of churches. Our association as churches is relational (around doctrinal distinctives of course), but our functioning together is because of our relationships with each other. That is why we are a â€śfellowshipâ€ť rather than a â€śdenomination.â€ť If as your Oct. 2008 letter indicates, that you and the elders question your desire for continued association with the FGBC, maybe the honorable act on your part would be to withdraw as a member church. Also, if you donâ€™t mind, I would appreciate a full copy of your October 16, 2008 letter.
