The time is coming fast when an interim minister will be here helping our congregation assess our religious journey to date and where we want it to go henceforth – answering perhaps three questions foremost:
1) Who as a religious congregation do we serve?
2) What do we hope for from that service?
3) By what means and methods shall we do it?
I think it’s never too early to ponder those questions. We’re always experimenting – positing, enacting, evaluating, repositing, etc. Though the congregation democratically divvies up the ministry and maintenance of the church through bylaws, charters, policies, contracts and delegation, all of us have a covenantal share in deciding and carrying out our goals. What a difference when we do.
Thanks to you,
