This post coming from my phone and typed in a church pew.
Partnering is a non starter for church leaders now. There are too many talented people in our communities doing powerful work with no reference to our churches for us to just stay over here and watch.
We need to meet them and learn from them. Artists. Teachers. Restauranteurs. Volunteers. There is nothing stopping us from getting curious about the work they’re doing and then telling others what we notice.
Maybe they’ll even invite us to help.
