Join our synod’s Mission Table for “Inspired for Mission,” a monthly virtual gatherings centered around inspiring stories of where God is leading our Church!

Our topic for November is “The Art of Gathering.” Members of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church will share how they’ve transformed congregational gatherings to be more hospitable, intentional, and meaningful with the guidance of “The Art of Gathering: How we Gather and Why it Matters” by Priya Parker. (NOTE: The session will include a summary of the book’s key principles for those who haven’t read it previously.)

Look forward to conversation around:

  • A program is not a purpose
  • Bigger isn’t always better
  • Don’t start a funeral with logistics
  • Where you gather matters
  • Martha and Mary: Don’t hide in the kitchen and let your guests fend for themselves

Meeting ID: 810 0844 8359

Passcode: 460428

Here’s how it works: We’ll start each Zoom gathering with an inspiring story about a topic related to the mission we share. Next, we’ll break into small groups for about 15 minutes to talk about what we heard (clergy and lay participants will have separate breakout rooms). We’ll then re-gather in the large group to share highlights and questions from our discussions.
