What makes a Christian community healthy and strong? We will be reading the book that Alissa co-wrote to explore this question. Alissa has been working and teaching in the field of congregational development for over a decade. She brings to us what she has come to see as 12 characteristics of a vital Christian community. Let's learn more about our community by reflecting on some of these characteristics together!
Our first gathering will be on Jan. 22nd at 10am. If you can read the introduction and chapter 1 (come regardless!). Let's explore and reflect on our purpose as we gather each week at St. Columba's. We will meet a total of 4 times. Concluding on Feb. 12th.
Jan 29th Chap. 4 "Able to Trust" led by James
