What impact have the last twelve months had on you and your congregation? The year 2020 brought many uncomfortable realities into focus, including the struggles of a global pandemic, stark political polarization, and the crisis of systemic racism and its consequences for us all. This discomfort can stimulate discussion and growth, and we are interested in what you are learning and how you are addressing racism, which keeps us from realizing the gifts of the entire community. Your honest responses to this survey will help build capacity across our synod to meet these challenges together. We believe that God’s Spirit is revealing new expressions of the church for this time and igniting conversations by which we can recognize and adopt them with creativity and hope.
