Presbyterianism in ten words or fewer
Hmmm. That got me thinking. What might that brief statement be?
Well, if the need is there, who's better than Berkley Blog readers to step up and fill the need? You can come to the rescue of your denomination by proposing what you think that ten-word-or-less statement of who we are might be.
So just to get your creative juices flowing, here are some warm-up examples of brief lines that help people get a handle on the Presbyterian Church:
Presbyterians: We're not half bad.
The church with more heritage than future.
Deformed and always being deformed by the word of ambiguity.
Not half as big as Baptists or bad as Unitarians.
We not only believe in total depravity; we demonstrate it!
Committed to per capita and property--and not much else.
Everything you’ve always wanted in a church--and less!
Presbyterians: Boy, did we once know what we believed!
The church that put the “total” in depravity.
We don't know what to think about damned unbelievers.
We care more about you than God.
Forget sin. Forget rules. Forget the Bible. We're PRESBYTERIANS!
Nothing is essential if you don’t want it to be.
Presbyterians: Preserving our property for the posterity of progressives.
Well, you get the idea. Now it's your turn to submit your suggestions. You can use the "Comments" apparatus of this blog (click on "Comments" at the bottom of the posting). Remember, make it ten words or fewer.
