    ruling from the boundaries

    What does "ruling from the boundaries" mean? It seems to be the opposite of "holding at the center." Thus, the former appears to mean "deciding from details" while the latter "sticking to the core." I am not sure.


    ===================
    One of the key things I remember Jim Singleton saying at the first Fellowship gathering in Minneapolis was that Fellowship and ECO would be a collection of people who are like-minded but not same-minded. I think that distinction is the very component for what ECO strives to be. Rather than ruling from the boundaries and dictating non-essentials, ECO desires to hold at the center: a core theology that gives clarity to the movement.

    Re: ruling from the boundaries

    Yes, ruling from the boundaries is meant in contrast to hold at the center.

    I've no idea what you mean by "deciding from details".

    The point is that ECO follows a core theology that gives clarity to the movement. Members need to share a certain perspective in order to best learn from each other.
