Lots of nuts and bolts at this meeting – largely focused on our plans to get started visiting parishes. Expect to hear from us soon!
Diocesan convention is approaching swiftly, and with it our the due date for our interim report. We’re starting to try to divide up the labor for our report by dividing into some key topic areas. We took a stab at it on our call on July 21. This is a very rough draft…but it’s a start. What do we have right? What’s wrong? What’s missing?
Here are the materials we’ll be using for the meeting on July 21 at 6pm EDT.
We’ll also be discussing some of the work of Tom Brackett, who has a lot of expertise on Church Planting, Ministry Redevelopment and Fresh Expressions of Church: 5marks.org and facebook.com/ecctombrackett
People who aren’t members of the Task Force are welcome to participate in the conversation on Twitter – use the #indydiotf hashtag.
In the course of our work, we’re finding lots of materials that inspire us and encourage us in our work on behalf of the Diocese of Indianapolis, and we thought we’d share some of them with you.
To start, we could do no better than a spectacular speech by the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, Bishop of North Carolina on the challenges and opportunities the Episcopal Church has in the modern culture. Bishop Curry is a member the Task Force for Reimagining the Episcopal Church, which is operating parallel to our own group. After seeing this, you’ll be glad he’s involved.
