In October, many of us gathered after worship to share our hopes for Gloria Dei, as well as our hurts and concerns. Several of you shared with me that you thought that was a good start to the healing work that is necessary for us and said you would like to have more conversations like that. With the help of the Spirit and the guidance of Rev. Barbara Abbott, we will have a second conversation to promote healing on Sunday, January 23rd at 1pm on Zoom.
We will gather on Zoom for an hour of what Rev. Abbott calls "an appreciative inquiry". We will take a close look at the gifts offered to Gloria Dei by our last four rectors and will also have time to discuss the challenges and things we needed as a parish, but didn't receive. This type of review not only gives us a chance to honor our personal joys and hurts, but to situate them within the context of our church's history. It will help us look at both the consistencies and the changes that Gloria Dei has experienced over many decades and will lead us toward a clearer vision of the gifts we're looking for in our next rector. Please consider joining us on Sunday, 1/23 at 1pm for this appreciative inquiry, facilitated by Rev. Barbara Abbott.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Megan Bartlett (267-581-9357 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
