Experimenting with joining in God’s work in the neighborhood has been a key discipline for us in our missional transformation. First we listen for and discern together what we think the Holy Spirit might be up to in our neighborhood, then we come up with an experiment based upon what we heard, we follow through with the experiment and then we come together again to reflect on what we learned from the experiment. But it doesn’t stop there – we come up with another experiment based on what we heard as we reflected. Attached below are some experiments we have tried.
In 2016-2017 we experimented with hosting webinars where panelists would explore a topic together and anyone within the presbytery could attend, listen and ask questions about the topic.
