Intro and ending music

jrams 4 years ago 0

Using our familiar (public domain) hymns for the intro and ending music in the podcasts would give an atmosphere more typical to around the table in our homes.

Would this be an appropriate forum to discuss the importance of not teasing those of us who are single?  Examples: Asking what is wrong with us that we are still single? (Many of us already ask ourselves that daily)  Making comments such as “you won’t be single long” (I’ve heard this since I was 18, and now I’m 44)  I realize these comments are not meant as put downs, but how are we supposed to respond in a Godly way?  I think it would be very helpful to have some single Elder Brothers, but I realize this is not logical seeing as how we’ve had very few single Ministers over the years.  It seems like this is a growing cross-section of our Church Body and I think it’s necessary to address this issue, but don’t know if this would be the appropriate time and/or place to discuss it...


History of how we greet each other

LMW 4 years ago updated by Admin 3 years ago 0

Some churches still always follow a greeting protocol: shake hands, greet with kiss, say greetings brother/sister. What is the history of this "greeting package"? How important is it to continue it, or how detrimental is it to discontinue it?


Fantastic new resource

Diana 4 years ago 0

Around the Table has been a blessing to me, and I really appreciate the effort that has gone into this new resource. It is helpful to feel more connected to our church’s national leadership by hearing all of you openly and conversationally discuss various topics. It seems that you seek to thoughtfully put forth a well-rounded perspective and promote healthy unity, mutual respect, and understanding vs. rigid uniformity. I look forward to future episodes!

Music feedback

jason 4 years ago updated by Elder Moderator 4 years ago 1

I greatly appreciate the Around the Table episodes published so far. However, some of the background music that plays during introductions and endings seems inconsistent with what we use and promote in worship and elsewhere. Using music with less of a beat and more familiar could help with the overall familiarity and comfort level of this new resource.

Older teaching younger

D Rokey 4 years ago updated by Admin 3 years ago 0

For around the table.

Visiting about and teaching on the older brothers and sisters teaching the younger / having that desire to do so and not being afraid to act upon this. And the younger being willing to listen knowing this is part of Gods design for learning. 
For us to understand how God wants things passed on generation to generation.

Prayer language

What type of prayer language should a believer use for audible prayers?
