The Presbytery was engaged in a major debate over the approval of the budget. Those on one side said we ought to cut the budget because the funds were not available. The other side argued that we ought to solicit more funds from the people so the budget would not have to be cut. It seemed to me that we had arrived at a stalemate. And then Bobby Hughes (Our Commissioner) arose to his feet. Now remember, this was Bobby’s first time at Presbytery meeting. But he stood, nevertheless, and offered a different view. “Why don’t we leave the budget as it is”, he said. “And why don’t we leave the pledges as they are”, he continued. “Why don’t we simply proceed on faith, believing that God will honor our faith and meet our needs”.
