Spent the day at Bishop’s Convocation hearing and talking about the church’s sustainability. An interesting word, if I say so myself, regarding God’s church. Is God’s church sustainable? My answer is an unequivocal YES. However, the "church" just may look very different from what many have been used to the last 500 or so years. After all, the church is the people - those who gather, worship, and depart to serve. And don’t people change?!?!? All the time!!
So how do we discern what God is calling the church to be in the next decade and beyond? That seems to be the million dollar question, and one we need to continue discussing, inviting as much conversation with as many as possible.
God has a plan, I firmly believe, and will reveal it as we go with God. Our task is to continue telling the story, praying and trusting.
