Qualifications of a Presiding Brother

When going to form an ecclesia one has to select people to be in charge of it or taking care of the working and good order of the ecclesial work. It’s important that a church leader will be working as a good house-steward, responsible for the affairs in God’s house, be looked up to — not pushy or arrogant, not short-tempered, not given to a lot of wine, not a bully or violent, not money-hungry or fond of dishonest gain, but rather, hospitable, a lover of goodness, sound of mind, just, holy, self-controlled, holding to that teaching in harmony with the faithful Word, also that he may be strong enough and have enough knowledge (and perhaps also experience) to exhort by that healthy teaching and reprove those who are opposing.

Looking back on yesterday’s January 3, 2021 service

As usual since March 2020, we had our Sunday service online. This time, however, was completely different provided that we could enjoy the baptized Iranians on January 2, as well as the presence of several Iranian and Farsi speaking brothers.

Some modern translations appreciate this in Acts 2:47 where instead of “added to the church” (KJV) they say “added to their… Read More The body of Christ gathering in corona-times

Today’s thought “That by it you may grow up into salvation” (December 12)

“That you may grow up into salvation” We meditate thoughtfully on Peter’s first letter: he was writing to the “elect exiles of the Dispersion” (1:1) – primarily Jews – as James (1:1) had also done “To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion” (1:1). Peter names them as being in “Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia”… Read More Today’s thought “That by it you may grow up into salvation” (December 12)

2020 Vernieuwde Google Sites

Sinds enkele jaren konden wij fijn gebruik maken van de webvoorzieningen van Google. 2020 bleek voor bepaalde website houders een jaar van verandering. Zo werden wij voor Blogger en Google Sites geconfronteerd met wijzigingen die heel wat trammelant zouden opbrengen. Onze oude Google-hoofdsite moest, net als alle Google-sites, worden geconverteerd naar de nieuwe Google-sites (als… Read More 2020 Vernieuwde Google Sites
