Just in case you haven't seen this!
Slowing down during your day will remind you of why you do what you do, and of who you are in the midst of your work. Take a few minutes to breathe in.
In case you missed it earlier today!
My sister has something helpful to say about barking up the wrong tree when we feel attacked.

Women with Men, Men with Women The question is, What does it take for women and men to work together in safety, in mutual respect, and in mutual empowerment? It takes more than beliefs and convictions. In other words, being anti-complementarian doesn’t create mutually flourishing environments. Nor is being an egalitarian, vocal...

What if Churches Formed Character? 08/02/2021

What if Churches Formed Character?

What if the church gave up its emphasis on programming? What would replace it? What would that require? It would require the kind of pastoring and attention to feeling that we as a church, in our promotion of pastors who do and who think, have missed.

It is our suspicion that a majority of vocational ministers are aggressive enneagram numbers: 3, 7, and 8. These are exactly the kind of people you hire and celebrate if you want things done.
They achieve goals, they push through hard circumstances, and they bring joy to others by what they DO.

But what an unseen post-pandemic American church will need is not a reinvigoration of programs victimized by our pandemic absences, but a rediscovery of character and soul work. Of course, that's what we've always needed, and one of the things the church has to offer a larger world.

Here's Scot McKnight on character formation in the church.

What if Churches Formed Character? We’re working on a project about church culture transformation. This newsletter/post is about church culture transformation and character. The following is a (very) rough draft of some ideas I have been working on. Your feedback is invited, your questions too.

[07/23/21]   Here is Beth reading the first chapter of her book.

Eleven28 on Twitter

Patriarchy isn't an imaginary force in churches, nor is it harmless or unavoidable. Dr. Beth Allison Barr's story isn't exceptional except in its public nature. We grieve her treatment, and we will continue doing everything that is ours to do when it comes to both resisting patriarchy and caring for those who've been injured by this unjust system propped up by weak theology, lazy interpretation, engrained habits, and those who have much to lose when women are fully celebrated, honored, and empowered as God-ordained embodiments of the Spirit. We're sharing Beth's Twitter posts this morning as but one example of this. The link is copied below.

Patriarchy compromises Good News. It hampers our witness to Jesus. It wounds women. Enough. https://twitter.com/1128Ministries/status/1418221546863276032?s=20

Eleven28 on Twitter “Patriarchy is real, it is dangerous, and those who prop it up will injure those who say "enough." We stand with Beth and with every woman who has seen and felt the harm done by the systems of patriarchy embedded in our church's hierarchies. https://t.co/dQ9F2X5FUZ”

Our friend Dr. Barr has had a rough couple of days from some rather mean-spirited boys who don’t like it when patriarchy is named. The best response to close-minded meanness is spreading truth and kindness. So, DM eleven28. The first five people to do so will be sent a free copy of her book The Making of Biblical Womanhood.

It's more than a heartfelt sentiment that ministers need specific kinds of care when they leave churches. There are good theological reasons to create opportunities for ministers to receive soul care even after they leave a church where they've served. https://buff.ly/3iypbb8

A Theological Case for Sabbatical Policies

What's your church's sabbatical policy? How well does your church leadership do Sabbath? The rhythms God has designed for Creation, including humans, doesn't look much like Western consumerism and busy-ness.

A Theological Case for Sabbatical Policies Every faith-based organization—especially churches—should set itself apart from its business and government counterparts by putting a sabbatical policy in place not as a perk or a benefit but rather at the heart of its organization’s employee policy. Here's why. Sabbath is God's Design for Cre...

[06/21/21]   Church can and should be space where we bridge differences exacerbated in 2020. Can our churches hold safe space for all of us, not just those that agree with us? Can our churches become safer for women, people of color, and our LGBTQ+ friends and family? "It's hard to hate close up."

If the narratives are true, and if vocational ministry follows the trends of other helping professions, we can expect large numbers of vocational pastors - full time and bi-vocational - to leave ministry in the next 12-18 months.

If that describes you, you think it may describe you soon, or it describes someone you know, please read this. It will feel familiar. If you're feeling alone, you don't have to be alone. Reach out.
