    Perhaps US Baptists are different to UK Baptists. My Baptist church has both elders and deacons, the elders look after spiritual leadership and deacons look after practical leadership.

    UK taxes are nice and easy with TaxCalc. In the US the only online options I've come across (not that I've looked very hard) either cost nothing but are interminably tedious to use, or run $100 or...

    I've always seen elders as responsible for spiritual leadership and deacons as responsible for practical leadership.

    I still think Josiah is lacking in his promises. Stopping people dying is all well and good but it's a bit late for those who are already dead. What are they supposed to do? Just think of the votes...

    So it won't make any difference if he is elected or not, right? Cancer has been "getting close to a cure" for decades now but still the cure evades us.
