So, that’s what we have. Just a reminder. We do our very best to not write a book on each of these. Some we get are pages and pages long and we have to cut them down. Some may not like that. We also take positioning words out as they mean different things to different people. For instance the most progressive and the most conservative congregation we would post is looking for a sound preacher but that term means different terms to different people. It actually means, healthy, but that is rarely what a church means when they list it in their post. Please let us know what we missed and what we got wrong. Thanks much. We are thankful beyond words for your help and your patience.
