On Monday evening prior to the official start of the 42nd General Assembly of the PCA a gathering took place called "An Evening of Confessional Concern and Prayer." The purpose to the open event was to address four rather controversial issues facing the PCA: 1) Procedures for dealing with errant Teaching Elders, 2) Insider Movement, 3) Male-only office holders, and 4) Theistic evolution. There was a panel of four men addressing the issues: Sean Lucas, Guy Waters, Rick Phillips, and David Strain. It was an important and helpful gathering characterized by clarity and an irenic spirit. The event concluded with a time of prayer.
