I’m just asking. It seems to me that the members should know if their elder steps down. Isn’t that part of the transparency issue between leadership and congregation? Isn’t that an important piece of information about which the church body should be made aware?
“As previously described, the bylaws were changed, and the consternation of some of the elders grew, culminating in several of the long term elders quietly stepping back from their role as leaders.” (Taylor, Joy S., A View from the Pews — The Inside Story of a Broken Church, 2022, Lily of the Valley Publishing, Santa Claus IN, p.43.)
