(June 20, 2017)
I’m getting ready for a great adventure. And I hope you’ll come along with me on it.
On Thursday, I’m going to fly to Louisville (the location of our denomination headquarters) and join some colleagues in an extended conversation about church revitalization. Aside from the absolute and humbling honor, it’s also a time for me to be invited to grow and expand my knowledge about the future of Christian churches in the 21st century. It’s an invitation for me to step back from all the work that we’ve been doing at South and take stock of it from a bit of a distance (physical as well as temporal).
The organizers sent along 11 articles for me to read before I get there … Presbyterians are nothing if not heady when it comes to the written word.
So I’m going to do my best to bring you all along on this journey with me … things I’m thinking … questions that arise … reflections and doubts as well as realizations of successes.
I hope you’ll respond with comments, questions, and your own perceptions because that’s where our greatest wisdom lies.
More to come.
