Going out on a Limb

June 25, 2019

“Go out on a limb”- that’s what thriving churches do! Yesterday we explored some of the aspects of research on thriving churches.


Thriving churches:
1. Say yes
2. Know who they are
3. Embrace risk 
4. Have connected leadership
5. Have institutional distance


One of the key aspects is a willingness to risk.

So we did! We looked at the story of Zachheus, who risked looking silly. We risked by providing space in worship to consider our future.


The day was full and we had an exceptional congregational meeting.
I am pleased that HUC seeks to thrive.


What signs of thriving do you see at HUC?
