Cake Baking Pressure / Leaders Listening to Followers / Proactive Discipleship

Good sense on the bake cake for gays issue.

Are leaders accountable to their followers?  Matt Perman thinks so, appealing to democracy and congregational church government.  I have reservations about both.  He probably takes this too far.  But his point is well taken that leaders must take their followers' thoughts into account.

A good thought coming out of the Duggar thing.  The last section on offensive discipleship instead of defensive is excellent.  It may be wrong to say they embody the things argued against in this article - I don't follow them that closely.  But this is needed stuff to remember.
