The family member wants to know that since the marriage contract was broken according to Scripture, do they still have to wait for the state divorce completion process or could they, if the right person comes along, start a new relationship?
» I am concerned with the leadership of our church council when it comes to decision making. I recently had a discussion with our board of education chairman and he stated that while he does serve as the board chairman, all decisions are made through him. He says that if the board has an idea that he personally disagrees with, he has no obligation to share it with the church council. Is this the right way to run a board? Why even have a board? I know some decisions need to be made quickly, but should there be parameters on what decisions are made solely by the chairman?
