Comings and Goings is a blog written by Theology, Worship and Education 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.
This past weekend I visited the Presbytery of Palo Duro, which extends from the panhandle down to north central Texas. They invited me to preach and to lead a conversation about the proposed new translation to the Heidelberg Catechism, one of the many statements of faith in the PC(USA)’s Book of Confessions. (This book would be more salacious but a lot less helpful if it were actually a collection of confessions of what Presbyterians have done wrong over the years, rather than this compilations of what we believe.)
