Questions Put To The Moderator

The Reverend Bruce Reyes-Chow, Moderator of the 219th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), has offered to answer interview style questions of anyone who submits them. Considering that I am an Ordained Minister of the Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and was in attendance as an observer at the General Assembly in San Jose, CA when Bruce was elected, I have decided to submit the following questions and promise to publish here, unedited, his responses. So, Bruce, . . .

. . . what has been your biggest surprise or greatest learning as Moderator of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) General Assembly?

. . . what has most disappointed you about serving as Moderator of the General Assembly?

. . . thinking back to the time you decided to stand for nomination as Moderator, what, between then and now, would you do differently, if you could?

. . . what do you envision for yourself and the Presbyterian Church ten years from now?

. . . when denominations seem to be diminishing in influence and for many are becoming increasingly irrelevant, why should anyone care about the future of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)?
