I will be interested in seeing other input on this.  Thank you DanB and
Scott for expressing ideas on this mini survey.

Here is my position.  We meet as a family, so essentially, the family
structure of leadership is the structure of the meeting.  Perhaps that is
not legitimately a church much less a homechurch.  I really cannot address
the issue of leadership within a traditional many family church setting - I
have no examples.  What I presume, is that God will lead when/if we are in a
situation such as that in the future.
