Practice Discipleship – Working Together in Solidarity & Going Public

March 29, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Working Together in Solidarity & Going Public is the third training session for Practice Discipleship. This is an opportunity for all congregational leaders to embrace a time to be faithful, thoughtful and intentional for ministry in the 21st Century.

Working Together in Solidarity: The ministry of accompaniment is the sacred act of being in authentic relationship with others. The purpose of this ministry is to allow individuals, groups and organizations to grow in love and compassion towards each other. Accompaniment calls congregations to listen deeply to their contexts in order to discern how best to walk alongside the community. This accompaniment provides a reciprocal relationship of giving and serving that builds the bond between the community and the congregation. This way of being in relationship calls the congregation to take the needs and the wisdom of its context seriously.

Going Public: So, how can my church engage our community in new and meaningful ways? This session will build off all the previous theological and theoretical sessions and offer a way forward with a handful of practices and exercises to empower your congregation to express its faith in public ways with your youth and adults. We’ve figured out the service project (sort of) but now let’s start talking innovatively and creatively about community asset mapping, public art, and public rituals.
