how long ag did you start?
Samantha Franklin

How did you encourage congregations to participate?
Donald Harting
46:10
I feel like I’m the only person in my congregation who knows or cares about RenewalWorks. I don’t even know where to begin, or how.
Barb

Donald I am there with you
Donald Harting

We had a false start with another parachurch ministry aimed at evangelism and church growth and now I think people are a little gun shy.
Edward Pardoe
48:04
because they gathered in-person with Renewal Works before the pandemic??
Barb
49:00
Can you speak to some examples of what the churches did, how they took the data and what they did differently
Donald Harting
53:03
Let’s talk in more detail about finding allies. The how piece. Different practical ways to get started.
Martha Gardner
54:12
I feel the time is right now. Everyone is asking "what will the church be in the new normal?" Regarding process - e.g, how you gathered folks together in the first workshop- knowing what you know - if you were starting to do this work on-line (not in person) with your congregations, any suggestions? What to watch for?
Donald Harting
54:24
An article in the church newsletter? A sign up sheet on the church bulletin board? An announcement during coffee hour? Hosting a coffee hour? Cold-calling other people whose names are in the directory?
Donald Harting
55:16
And how to approach the rector who is resistant to this?
Martha Gardner
56:41
I was recently asked by a colleague about how Renewal Works has worked in congregations of color? Not just in NH, but what is Renewal Works experience with these communities?
Andrea Farley
57:33
what wisdom would you give on how to nurture openness in congregations to the RW process?
Donald Harting
59:48
OK, great, how do I start a meaningful, effective one-on-one conversation? I feel like I’m always selling but no one is buying.
Donald Harting

but Saddleback and Willow Creek are white churches
Donald Harting
01:05:04
OK great let’s start there. How do I get someone else in my church besides me to do RenewalWorksforMe? I’m a lone ranger. I don’t want to be a lone ranger.
Barb
01:05:35
Does anyone have experience with the Renewal Works "for Me"?
Edward Pardoe
01:05:54
it is GREAT.
Donald Harting
01:06:06
Yes. I do. I liked it and I’d be happy to say more about it.
Claire Doerschuk
01:08:29
Yes, it is great. Means different things to different folks.
Edward Pardoe
01:14:16
Indeed thank you Bishop and Tina!
Naomi Cunningham
