Who Do You Think You Are? Basis for Identity and Values

I’m not sure objecting to starting something based on where one was born or brought up, in terms of starting a new congregation in a church., is the wrong thing to do. I would object again in a hurry. To have this objection cited as an example of not empowering a pastor to plan, is instructive – or maybe confusing. Either way, it does show a very difficult path ahead.
