Dwelling In The Word
Church Innovations has the habit of text dwelling. That is, whenever we meet, as a staff, as a work team, as a training group, we spend the first 20-30 minutes, sometimes more, dwelling within a particular scriptural passage. For us, most of the time, the text is Luke 10:1-12. It is a text of mission, of being sent out with the most basic of instructions, dependent upon our receivers’ hospitality.
It is so important a practice that we have decided to offer Dwelling in the Word learning events in as many places as we can during 2012 and 2013, all leading up to the International Dwelling in the Word Festival in June 2013. Please click here to learn more about these events.
As we consider our decisions and actions in congregations and church bodies, in hiring, selling our books, and creating partnerships, this text speaks to us, sometimes moving us forward, sometimes making us think differently about what is happening to us and how we should respond.
You can have this habit, too.
Let us know how this works for you. We love feedback, and we love collecting stories and insights. Send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Dwelling in the Word blog to join in the conversation.
