Governance as Spiritual Practice

This is a post that’s “not like the others”.  But if we look closely it is connected through the way it, like other posts here, invites a practice of loving attention.  This is a post to point to a conversation on a way of governance, created within a United Church congregation but adaptable for other denominations.  It grew from a dream of what might be in our boards or councils, a dream that our decisions and directions really could be integrated with the narrative of our lives, our narrative of Scripture and of the congregation.   It grew out of a desire to invite leadership from those newly come to a faith community as well as those long established; leadership rooted in passion and gift rather than duty.

What comes to mind when you hear ‘governance’? Fatigue, boredom, conflict, necessity . . . What if there was a way of governance that said, community, faith formation, discernment, green-growing leadership? What if you found a way of governance that was spiritual practice?  This is a post to invite you or to invite you to invite others to a conversation on this way of governance.
