I am officially tossing my hat into the ring to be Vice-Moderator of the 220th General Assembly (2012) of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
Please pick me.
As I reported previously, Parker Williamson of the LayMAN heralded with trumpets my election as commissioner from Holston Presbytery. He even included this grand pronouncement in the print edition! I have been as giddy as a schoolboy ever since.
I now realize that this must be a calling from the Lord.
I humbly offer myself as Vice-Moderator.
I know that candidates who run for moderator don't really run. They stand for moderator. What is the correct posture for a vice-moderator? Crouch? Limp? Creep? Waddle?
I just want you candidates for moderator to know, that whatever posture is required, I will serve.
For those candidates who have already chosen a crouching mate, rest assured that you can dump him or her. It is OK. I am in the race now. Pick me. God said to.
