What sorts of things does a local church board discuss at it’s annual retreat?
The flower roster?
The need to cut the length of the Sunday morning harangues … I mean … sermons?
The leaky roof?
Not likely, at least not at the one I’ve been involved with today. On our agenda were:
- brainstorming closer work with the six other congregations in our suburb
- working on our indigenous reconciliation agenda
- advancing our environmental care policy with an energy audit
- creating opportunities for enhanced cross generational engagement with the local community
