I was involved in this situation where a Church was trying to run off a pastor (they did have good reason to wish him gone as he had an affiar with the secretary). He finally was forced to announce his resignation on the last Sunday of the month. Two weeks before this meeting the men of the Church met together to discuss the situation and the former pastor dropped in to give his opinions. The former pastor decided and convinced the men to not let the pastor preach on his last sunday but just gather the Church in a business meeting and discuss the direction of the Church. I made the objection that we had two preachers in the Church (retired minister and a preacher in Bible College) and because of the constant flow of visitors (non-christian) that we should have preaching in the Church. I was voted down and sure enough that Sunday, we had two songs, the pastor announced his resignation effective immediately, then we went into a meeting where one of the men from the meeting gave a small speech of how we should all pull together. Good speech but there was no bible in it whatsoever. What is your view on not having preaching in Church service, AM, PM, or mid-week? (this includes Bible study and prayer time if substituted in evening or mid-week service).
