Peter Rogness is my Bishop and a very fine Bishop he is, IMHO. He was speaking to a gathering of local ELCA clergy and shared with us the four core values that he envisions guiding the shared work of our congregations. It's good stuff! Here they are:
- Relationships are more life-giving than programs or structures;
- Outreach is fundamental;
- We are “repairers of the breach;”
- Being Lutheran is an asset.
So for the next few posts I'm going to take each of those values in turn and talk about how I see it pointing us towards an emphasis on a house church expression. Stay tuned!
