This seminar was led by Malcolm Duncan of Faithworks and Paul Sanderson of The Wire Project. The session started with a Biblical basis of why we should be involved in our community – points included the need to protect human dignity, our prophetic role, the need to have a Kingdom mentality, holiness and worship, being salt, light and yeast, and the example of St. Francis of Assisi.

Paul then shared his experiences of starting the Wire project which were really helpful in the different ways that the work has developed and the way that inter-church work can be really successful. Something to continue to mull over and come back to me thinks.

  1. I think a big step in the right direction is to include children, teenagers, and young adults in the church community at a significant level. There’s a place for age-oriented groups, but when these groups turn into mini-congregations, it makes it more difficult for teenagers and young adults to move on to another church and find their place in the Body of Christ.
