About this blog

Comings and Goings is a blog written by Theology, Formation, and Evangelism Director Charles B. "Chip" Hardwick as he travels throughout the church. God is on the move out and about in the world, working to redeem all things in Jesus Christ. As we join this mission, by the power of the Spirit we see God on the move. This blog contains glimpses of how Chip finds this to be true in his comings and goings.

Inspire, Equip, and Connect

Perhaps proving the old Presbyterian adage that you can’t get to heaven without crossing through Montreat, I ran into a friend of mine from seminary who happened to be at Montreat at the same time as me.  He pastors a church at a nearby presbytery, and told me about a recent conversation at their presbytery about whether or not the purpose of the “General Assembly” is to help churches to thrive.
