How can I be renewed in the midst of great needs, declining resources and uncertainty about what comes next?
Sustained renewal requires participation in a community that shares a common vision. Christians have a vision, described in Scripture, of God’s reign. As the story of Acts shows, it takes considerable effort from the community to keep the end of God’s reign before us.
In our educational programs, participants are invited into a pattern of life that includes worship, study, rest and fellowship. We seek to embody Christian practices such as hospitality. We invite participants to imagine how to adjust their typical pattern of work to include more of these elements.
When resources of time and money are scarce, it is very difficult to reach out and join or renew relationships. Yet that is exactly what is required.
