How do you guys present decisions that you have discussed with your Deacons or other men to the church. Do you say, "The leadership of the church has decided..." Or do you say, "I have decided, and the men agree that..." A Pastor friend recently cautioned me that is it not wise to allow the men of the church to feel they are on "equal ground" regarding the decisions of the church. If so, they may get offended or upset if you do not seek their input on a decision regardless of the importance. As Pastor, I was advised, I need to be the visible decision maker. This didn't sound just right to me although I see his point. What are your thoughts on the subject?
