Our 19 Guiding Questions await your further input. Some conversations are well underway. A colorful display of different-sized post-it notes and stickers attests to the relevance and timeliness of these questions.
However, other question boards remain mostly white and over-looked. Perhaps these questions are less concrete or more time-consuming to address. Maybe their out-of-the-way locations make them less likely to get attention. Whatever the reason, we crave your opinions. If you don’t have answers, post comments that invite further discussion.
All 19 questions address deeply important aspects of our future ministry. Please continue the conversation and add your unique viewpoint to the future vision for St. Paul.
Below is an overview of the process for your reference.
Step One: (Present – February)
- Cottage meetings will be held in congregant’s homes, coffee houses, or at St. Paul to determine our guiding questions for this process of discovery and the areas we would like to further reform.
Step Two: (March – June)
- Church-wide, interactive meetings will take place to find solutions and actions for our guiding questions.
Step Three: (June – October)
- A draft of our reformation directive will be written by the ARAR team, considered by the congregation and ultimately, received on Reformation Day 2017—the Reformation’s 500th anniversary.
Please keep this process in your prayers and as opportunities arise please give your heart, mind, and time to this process.
