September 9 – We left Duxbury ( on September 8th ) at rush hour time for our drive_up I-95 to North_Andover , MA with Wanda Stahl , Director of Resourcing Ministries , at the wheel
had the patience of Job as we crawled along the highway for m-i-l-e-s.There we led a training event for Methodist congregations called Spiritual Discernment as a Tool for Congregational Decision-Making. Pastors and board members who participated in the event framed and worked on a matter for spiritual discernment in their local congregations throughout the day.They , too , were a wonderful group.One person said about our resources : This is like being in a candy store! CO/EM.
September 15-16 – Central Nebraska hosted an introduction to Doing Church Business the Worshipful-Work Way on the campus of Hastings College
.This was in some way a homecoming for me. My home church in Minden and the Grand_Island church
that I served for ten years are in that presbytery.
