This week, Pastor Walt was invited to lead a workshop that was offered by Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries to pastors in the Nebraska Synod. He was asked to share the resources that he helped develop at St. James to help with congregational renewal and opening conversations where diverse opinions can be expressed and listening is encouraged. From Pastor Coffees and Listening Posts to Unique Conversations and even Council meetings, these innovative tools are used regularly in the life of our community to listen to joys and concerns. This has helped at St. James to create a vibrant place that remains open to discern God's work among us. If you would like to hear more or share your thoughts please let Pastor Walt know (email him at email@example.com). He would be happy to share a cup of coffee with you and listen to whatever you have to say.
