|For the last several weeks, we have been considering what could make church board meetings feel like church, instead of all the other meetings in our lives.
Among the values shared:
The monthly church meeting as an invitation to depth, nurture, and discipleship.
If we feed people spiritually, all the true institutional needs of a congregation will be taken care of.
We learn to praise God not by paying compliments, but by paying attention.
Trust, depth, and joy are the foundation – and the fruits – of a church board.
We have a choice of either constantly worrying about broken fences or digging a deep, refreshing well.
It’s not about more information.
Who or what is teaching you what to do when the certain thing doesn’t happen?
Liberate ourselves from the shallow and transactional – and go deeper with God and one another.
Belonging to one another in a church — learning to build community and nurture trust not only in your worship but in your board meeting.
