What Works (part 1):
I was asked recently to contribute my thoughts and practices for a lecture and discussion of what works for churches of different sizes. I was hesitant to do it, somewhat because I didn’t want to spend the time to prepare for it. But that is only half of the truth. I spend time doing all sorts of things that on the surface do not seem important to most people. Being a minister means that I have the opportunity to sit and talk with someone with no action items to assign, no agenda to work through. I get to just share space with people.
