Reframing Hope: Vital Ministry in a New Generation." Carol spoke about her book and also shared some great ideas that pushed us to think about ways we can get a wider audience for our own voices.
Our frames, or constructs, influence the way we approach the life of the church and the way we interact with the world. Carol is a great advocate for mainline churches, believing we're not done yet. But faithfulness seems to require tilting our heads a bit to the side, trying to get another perspective on what God is calling us to do and be. In the book, Carol examines the ways cultural shifts necessitate reframing our understanding of authority, community, our mediums of communication, the ways we tell our story, avenues for activism, attention to creation, and developing new traditions for expressing our spirituality.
Did Carol's insights resonate with your experience? Were there ways she pushed you to think about things differently?
