re-VIEW-ing

May 24, 2018

 

Interim work involves reviewing a congregation's heritage and current assets in order to prepare the congregation for the future with a new pastor. What worked in the past that works today (or doesn't work today)? What does the current church vision suggest the congregation might do differently to prepare for future ministry and mission? Discerning a new vision and a creating new mission statement flesh out the "where" and "how" of the review.

 

My sermons in early Summer will concentrate on reviewing or reVIEWing... taking a new perspective on some ares of church life we often take for granted. The first three sermons (June) will look anew at the Bible, spirituality, and mission.

Discerning a new vision and a creating new mission statement

flesh out the "where" and "how" of the review.

By taking a fresh look at these, I hope to offer some insights into Calvin's core values and what a new perspective could offer regarding moving ahead to calling a new pastor.

 

For instance, how might a spiritual reading of scripture (vs. technical or literal) transform a congregation? How is spirituality connected to justice? How is the Church God's mission?

 

"To everything there is a season" wrote the preacher in Ecclesiastes. Let this be our season of reVIEWing.
