    Yeah, my first reaction was that, historically, the "Palestinians" aren't really interested in solving any problems that don't include Israel no longer existing.

    Yup... and something else that's been a bone of contention of sorts... Baptists churches "ordain" deacons pretty much "for life". If a deacon falls by the wayside, or otherwise becomes ineligible...

    Another thing I've noticed is that, particularly in Bible Churches, the Pastor is an elder. There are typically no fewer than 3 elders, one of whom is the Pastor, and he's the "lead...

    I used the "and/or" in the title because I know of a number of Churches that have both.

    This should not be a contentious thread, as I'm only asking opinions and anecdotal 'evidence'.

    Thanks - appreciated. And I recall that you and I (or somebody and I) even mentioned that some churches (including mine when I was a kid) had "deaconesses".
