Hope in Change
Churches are not known for their embrace of change. Very often, change within a congregation is a source of conflict and challenge.
But for some ministries, “change” is at the heart of who they are. In the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the language of “redevelopment” or “restart” is used to talk about ministries that are in the process of significant change.
Ultimately, the change in these ministries is not a threat, but a new birth – a sign of God’s resurrection power in the midst of our community.
In this month’s Toolbox, we sit down with a pastor leading one of these “restart” ministries to learn about the hope that she finds in the change that her community is experiencing.
Learn with us from Pastor Ashley Dellagiacoma of Kindred.
