Nothing against micro-denominations, but should NAPARC really allow a group of seven churches (one of which is in the U.K.) to have equal membership with denominations the size of the PCA or OPC or ARP or even the much, much smaller RCUS?I think the Presbyterian Reformed Church didn't get enough "yea" votes to come in. They got no "nay" votes, but a denomination or two ignored them for some reason. It's a shame, but I think they're back up this year.
My guess is that the ERQ, though smaller, is viewed as a "more strategic" member of NAPARC.The ERQ is smaller than the PRC (though in a smaller land, to be sure). HRC isn't a whole lot bigger. I think it's encouraging that some of the micro-churches are seeking ecumenical relations within the mainstream Reformed community, and I pray this will help promote unity and even (in God's timing) union between those of like faith.
