The Messy Work of Renewal

There is a good article on the hard, messy work of renewing a congregation available from the Albin Institute. My favorite part of the article is the opening sentence:

“If you’ve ever remodeled a house while attempting to live in it, you have a sense of the chaos and complexity of congregational renewal. It will take far longer, cost you more, and prove messier than you ever imagined at the start.”
