Craig

Sounds good to me ...
it is unbecoming to spend more than three evenings a week in church based activity... more to follow

Catriona

Brilliant!


it is conduct unbecoming to fail to take your allotted number of free Sundays, holidays and at least most of your scheduled days off...

Sue Barker

At the Assembly we welcomed the newly accredited ministers etc. It would be good to see the Steering Group and the Trustees - were they all there?

Kevin Brown

Cool!

Barbara Carpenter

This Trustee was there, yes! And most of my fellow Trustees were too. Good points, Andy, felt myself smiling and nodding in agreement!

Paul

It is conduct unbecoming to take baptist structures too seriously.
It is conduct unbecoming to insist that church members are naive or stupid if they hold to the virgin birth, miracles and signs contained within the Gospels as literal events.

David Fleming

It is conduct unbecoming for any minister of a fresh expressions church to use every opportunity to sneer at those in more traditional expressions of church, as if they were the only ones through whom God is at work these days.

Juliet Kilpin

I like this Andy! Can you also write a list of core incompetencies? :-)

Graham Dunn

Andy I find Wayne Grudem an excellent start point as he provides a good framework to consider and think through theological topics. We don't have to agree with him but over the years he has provided me with a valuable entry point into a number of topics. Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology should be on every Baptist Minister's shelf, as should Macquarrie.

Paul Richards

How about it being conduct unbecoming for any Baptist minister to determine what is conduct unbecoming for another Baptist minister?

Ken

It is conduct unbecoming of the system for any minister to get uneven treatment because of who they are, how long they've been around or how well they are received or because of the level of value they bring to the Union.

Ken

Apologies, I can't seem to edit my last comment. I think there's more to say there. Andy, I love that Wayne Grudem does not count for continuing development. Is that because he discourages thinking for yourself or interpreting Scripture according to what it means?

It is conduct unbecoming for any minister of a fresh expressions church to use every opportunity to sneer at those in more traditional expressions of church, as if they were the only ones through whom God is at work these days.

Yes, yes, yes!

John James

It is conduct unbecoming to snipe at colleagues through blogs or tweets. Love one another

Oh dear... If Craig and Catriona are right, I'd have been booted out in my first year. I guess that's the point though.
