Last night the gathering reached a particular milestone as we crafted the last of our aspirational statements which will say something about who we are, what we are trying to be, and how we are trying to live out our lives.
We are not quite there yet, but last night seemed to be a significant step in the right direction. We now have 4 aspirational statements which will give us something to aim for as we live out our lives of this Christian journey. I don’t really want to write them here in their entirety yet as we still need to re-look at them and craft them a little more together now each one has been written separately. The general themes of our aspirations are sanctuary, belonging, exploration and presence.
The next stage for us will be to re-visit these and craft them together so that they work. As I look over them collectively there is some repetition and we will probably realise there is some stuff missing. The community is quite passionate about hospitality .. so we may decide that needs naming specifically.
But … we have reached this stage and that is pretty exciting.
To be continued …
