Plan to be at worship on Wednesday, April 27 or Sunday, May 1 for a visioning process!
We will share the scripture readings and sermon in a participatory style. Scripture passages will be presented and each person will be asked to mark a card indicating her or his choices of interpretation in response to the passages.
After sharing communion, along with prayer, we will engage everyone in a casual conversation of what is valued at
St. Johns, asking three simple questions:
- Past: What is a time or specific event that spiritually touched you where you felt most alive in your faith journey?
- Present: What is it about your congregation that you value most ?
- Future: If God gave you three wishes for the future of your congregation, what would they be?
Do some praying about your participation with this experience and some reflecting on these perspectives ahead of time. One of our goals with the Revision Revamp 2016 process is for full congregation input into where we trust that God is leading us, the missional directions that are given for the next five years as a congregation. We are not there yet. We are striving to listen well. We are gathering input.
