In our congregation there are now more ex-elders than current ones. (Probably very common)
what I notice most of all, is that the ones who were the best speakers (we actually had some good ones) are the ones who have all stepped down.
I'm of the opinion the better teachers recognize its all a joke, and can't be bothered to reach out again.
So the ones left who are taking the lead are the most boring ones available. Is it similar in other congregations?
