Have you heard of certified lay pastors wearing clerical collars and registering at Presbytery on the page for ministers?

Just wondering,

Nope. Is that a southern thing?

I hope it's NOT a Southern thing.

Isn't being an elder a high calling enough?

I guess I've only gone to presbytery meetings where the clergy names were all typed up and we signed next to them. I guess I could undersatnd the signing as a minister, because they're representing their church as a minister, not an elder. But the collar? Wierd.

Clerical collars? I can't remember seeing ministers wearing clerical collars to a presbytery meeting--or anywhere else, including church on Sunday.

As for signing up, we have a couple of CLP's whose commission authorizes them to act as the installed pastor of their congregation. In that case I think they do sign in as a minister representative. But those commissions are renewed (or not) regularly and so they don't get to sign in that way once the commission has expired.

Our Presbytery's sign-in has a specific place for a CLP to check.
