Youre Invited to the TOT Reallocation Meeting

Posted on April 2 2009 by travjohnson
Raymond Culpepper opens the door further toward a future of denominational transparency. There is zero doubt that this is the most interactive, transparent denominational leadership the Church of God has ever had. The decision to open the windows and let the sunshine in does the following:
— Lets the entire COG observe the process.
— Immediately distributes information.
— Causes members of the Committee of Action to own their decisions publicly.
— Gives the denomination a basis by which it can select its future leader based on the positions espoused.
— Guards against the perception of progress while private decisions are made toward protectionism.
— Extends an unclinched hand toward the constituents of the COG saying I trust you with information and process.
