After a week-long intensive course on Alliance History and Theology, the pastor came back with greater understanding, and zeal, for the theological foundation of the C&MA - namely, the Fourfold Gospel. There is a great deal of meaning represented within the Alliance's logo that may not be understood at a glance. So the pastor thought it worthwhile to talk through the logo and interpret the Fourfold Gospel, since virtually no one in the congregation (including himself) had grown up in this church tradition. Tradition is an anchor which limits movement from a certain centre point. This can be bad, but it can be great also, provided that people understand the reason to remain near to that anchor-point.
