In a recent flight to Dayton, Ohio, friend and colleague Katie McKay asked me about what kind of community I dream about serving. After a few seconds I gave her what seemed to me later like a convoluted answer.
I continued thinking about the question as we both enjoyed our time with the Young Pastors Network and the Change the World Conference.
One of those mornings it came to me . . . I would love to lead a liturgical, sacramental, contemplative, progressive, missional congregation.
Wow!!! That seems like a lot to ask!
In the next few weeks I hope to tease these characteristics out in the hopes that others catch a vision for this kind of faith community.
Maybe is not a crazy dream at all . . .
