Well, day 1 is in the books... and I'm wiped!
We flew into Denver this morning to join 5 other churches who are planning to (or currently) do multisite and want to learn more.
It was a FULL day of travel and then digging into some great material that Geoff Surratt has put together as we wrestled through some identifying aspects of our churches.
Much of today included drawing (makes you articulate what you're trying to say even more when you can't use words!) and thinking about what things are unique to your church, what you do well and why you do it.
I took a total of 4 point-form notes. There was little time spent teaching to us; it was very much self-discovery.
Through the day, I've come up with this list of things I've learned so far:
This is all I can put together before falling into bed, exhausted. We've got another full day tomorrow and also some free time Thursday night and Friday. I'll be able to type more about that in the days ahead.
I am a pastor in rural Manitoba that is passionate about the church, leadership, coffee and bicycles.
