In this episode, Erika interviews attorney Sarah Merkle, one of only five lawyers in the world to have earned the credentials of Certified Professional Parliamentarian-Teacher and Professional Registered Parliamentarian.
Together they discuss why tense moments can arise during church meetings—especially ones that include a vote on important issues. In addition, they review the importance of up-to-date bylaws and other important church documents.
In addition to her certification, Sarah is the blog editor and primary contributor for The Law of Order: A Resource on Parliamentary Procedure & the Law. Sarah is also a senior editorial advisor for Christianity Today’s Church Law & Tax.
