“What Contributes to Spiritual Growth? What Gets in the Way?: Learnings from Episcopal (and Other) Churches.” A Forum with Jay Sidebotham, Director of RenewalWorks, a Ministry of Forward Movement
Jay’s work with Forward Movement explores catalysts for spiritual growth in individuals and in congregations. The work begins with research that had its origins in a large non-denominational church outside of Chicago (Willow Creek). RenewalWorks seeks to adapt, translate, sift those learnings to see what applies to Episcopal congregations. We’re discovering a distinct Episcopal culture, with particular factors that contribute to spiritual growth. We’re also learning about what seems to impede such growth. As the new year begins, listen in on this conversation with potential for impact on your own spiritual journey, and on this parish in a time of discernment.
