How should a church make a big decision? At what point should the elected representatives hold a referendum? What majority at such a vote would represent a mandate? At what point is a decision big enough to need a vote by the elected representatives rather than a call by the executives? What decisions need referring to all the people?
Is this about trust? Should we trust the Rector? The Church Wardens? The Church Council? A small voice crying in the wilderness? A small person crying in the corner? Should we draw lots?
Let me know when you've got an answer.
