EP on eLink
In 2008 we made the transition to exclusive electronic communication, replacing Shenango Showcase which had been published regularly for many years. I wrote a brief article for those newsletters. This electronic note is intended to continue this vehicle of communication with leaders of our churches. I will generally make a brief comment and then provide a link to and article that I think will help you as leaders of your churches. It will come to you via eLink which you can access through the Presbytery Homepage www.shenango.org
09.08.12 So Much Is Changing…What Can We Do?
I like to (half-jokingly) say, “I’m not very smart, but I try to hang out with people who are.” Alan Roxburgh, who some of you know from our missional church work, is one of those people. He is very smart, insightful about the church provocative and sometimes irritating! But I learn a lot from him.
Here is a note written by John McLaverty which Alan published on his website. It includes a YouTube video about change. How does a pastor or elder lead a church in a time of “discontinuous change?” It takes a high level of courage and honesty. Take a look.
