Last Lord's day I filled in for the regular teacher for the adult Sunday school class. We are working our way through Exodus chapter-by-chapter, and this will be our third week on chapter 32. This chapter is on when Moses and Joshua came down from the mountain to see the people of God worshiping a golden calf. It is a very interesting chapter in a general sense, but it is especially important for us as a church right now. We are in the process of possibly ordaining someone to the ministry to serve in our church, so looking at the characteristics of Moses and Joshua as leaders can be very instructive. Since we were having this discussion, I spent some time talking about longevity of leadership at a church and how my denomination, that of the baptists, completely misses this and are the worse for it.
