In this case study I would speak to Frank as a pastor and a friend because we have a relationship that has developed over time when we have spent Saturdays together. Whether he is an active member or only attends church on Sundays I would still council him with the same respect that I would as someone who is very active in the church. I would be accountable to correct Frank because he is wrong. Frank knows he is wrong, but still needs to hear it. It would be my main focus for Frank to understand what he is putting at risk in destroying his marriage and also Trixxi’s.
This historical church connects well to the motto “That the future may learn from the past” because we can learn that people should be able to worship as the please and also we can learn about the type of music that was used. Since everyone had to attend Bruton Parish Church in Colonial times, this can teach us that people should be able to worship whoever they want or no one at all, whether they are Christian, Catholic, Muslim, or any religion really. From Peter Pelham, the first organist, we can learn what type of music was used back then and then we could innovate it and make it even better. The Bruton Parish Church was very important in colonial times, is still valuable today, and helps us learn from the

Hughes ' comprehension of his aunt 's explanation about salvation revival was based on his concept because he was so young; therefore, it made him come away and feel differently about God. Hughes was eager to see what his aunt told him that if he was saved from sin, then he will see a light and something will happen to him inside, and God will be with him from then on (Hughes 549). Hughes was so young to understand the faith feelings, so when he went with his aunt to the church revival, he was expecting to see what his aunt and many great old people have said to him about seeing a light, feeling something good inside and meeting Jesus in the church. Moving to the exact target that Hughes was looking for, which to meet Jesus as a person

This is exemplified when in Antonio’s dream of his birth, his father’s family further shares of how they want for Antonio to continue in his father’s vaquero legacy, and become a Márez, “Gabriel, they shouted, you have a fine son! He will make a fine vaquero!” (5). From the beginning of the book, it is shown how Antonio’s parents have colliding views on how Antonio’s legacy should be shaped.

His concerns regarding this issue are that motives may be proliferated by traditionalists, resistant to change or by those seeking vain-glory, taking on many forms. In matters of job security, this pastor remains open to serve the Lord where He wants him to serve. As he said, “At the end of the day, God has not called us to be employed, but to be faithful.” Ultimately, this pastor in many ways still seeks to attain “a balanced view on all issues,” desiring to make educated decisions. The decisions he makes in many instances are based on past experience, beliefs, self-reflection, knowledge of fallen man, a loving spouse and
His arguments were sound and logical, but I expected him to go into greater detail on the need for the return of hymn style worships songs to the church at large. Please do not misunderstand me, I do realize he did in the negative sense promote this, but he never came out and said it plainly. All of that aside, I enjoyed this chapter on congregational worship and found it quite agreeable. I know in my own life I have had to think diligently about why and how I am singing. Such thoughts would have never crossed my mind not long ago.
In any church, the people will be used to better the program instead of being taught to better their relationship with God. The book states, “We see people not as cogs in our wheel, or as resources for our projects, but as individuals each at their own stage of the gospel growth. Our goal for each person is that they advance, that they make progress, that the move one step forward form where they are now.” This should be the purpose and the plan for every church in America. The plan to treat the members of the congregation as individuals and by treating them as individuals, they will learn to work for the whole. A key strength to church growth and church revitalization is understanding if a congregation is to grow numerically, more work will need to be put into the trellis or the support of the church.
He implores that, “Now, today, this moment, is our chance to choose the right side. God is holding back to give us that chance. It will not last forever. We must take it or leave it.” (Lewis, 65) Having read Book Two, we as readers now have the knowledge we need to know of God. Therefore we must either choose to accept or reject the idea of Him and either become a member of the Christian faith or not.
