While Chip goes on a sabbatical journey and our congregation enjoys a sabbatical journey here at home, you are invited to join Chip and the Session in reading Brian McLaren’s book The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion Is Seeking a Better Way to Be Christian.
As we have learned over the past year, we are all on a spiritual journey, a pilgrimage through life and faith. As a “transformational magi congregation,” our church has also been on a journey of reflection and discernment about who God is calling us to be in our community and world.
With the insights from the CAT survey, navigating our way through several staff and structural transitions as well as the pandemic, and the culmination of our capital campaign, now is the perfect time to reflect on where we have been and where we are headed next.
As we re-open and re-engage, what kind of church is God calling us to be? The Great Spiritual Migration offers a thought-provoking and exciting vision for how the church can move into the future with a message of new life and hope. “With his trademark brilliance and compassion, McLaren invites readers to seize the moment and set out on the most significant spiritual pilgrimage of our time: to help Christianity become more Christian.”
Copies of the book are available in the office for $13 or you can order it online. Read over the summer so you can join the conversation in the fall! From the Church
