“To note that the religious culture of our region is changing is no newsflash, nor is it to observe how the emerging context demands new skills in our clergy and lay leaders. The place of the Bible, however, remains central to Christian faith and ministry.
The Exploring the Bible series meets the changes with content that is substantive for those already knowledgeable, accessible to those reading for the first time, and perhaps most importantly it creates space for ecumenical dialogue around Christian texts.
The Learn-to-Lead workshops provide effective training in small group leadership, a skill set necessary in the next generation of church leaders. The series and the workshops are terrific responses to the demands of cultural change.”
