In the previous post, I briefly laid out the purpose for the creation of pcapolity.com. In this post, I want to walk you through the plan for the site. As you will find, a simple plan complements our straightforward purpose. The site plan comprises three main features.
The first feature is static content which explains and illustrates aspects and components of the PCA’s polity. Under the Basics of Presbyterian Polity heading, you will find explanations of the PCA’s preliminary principles, constitutional documents, parliamentary procedure (Robert’s Rules of Order), and denominational structure. Under the Case Studies heading, you will be able to consider illustrations of the PCA’s polity in action (esp. at the General Assembly level). As time goes on and this project matures, the editors will add new content and more sophisticated organization to these pages.
The second feature is a blog that serves as a platform for exploring specific issues and making editorial commentary. This content will be dynamic (rather than static) by nature, meaning that the focus will be occasional and issues-oriented. The editorial team will carefully review all articles appearing on the blog, but the views expressed in a given post are to be understood as belonging to the respective author alone. While some blog posts will be substantial enough (around 1,500 words) to allow for relatively thorough examinations of particular issues, most posts will be quick reads.
The third feature is a Resources page with links to external sites of interest to the conscientious presbyter. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these valuable resources as you seek to develop your competencies as a Presbyterian churchman and student of biblical ecclesiology.
Please accept my warm invitation to explore the three features of this site. One of the editors’ goals is to curate content that is easily navigable. If you are having any trouble navigating this site, please let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. May God richly bless you as you seek to love His Kingdom and His Christ.
