THE DREAM TEAM:"WAKE UP YOUR DREAMING"
For some of us dreaming comes easily. For others, we struggle to get the dreaming started. Give one or two of these ideas a try to 'wake up your dreaming':
Ask the small groups in your congregation... Bible Study groups... Ladies/Men's groups... Youth group... Confirmation class... Sunday School (kids and parents)... Coffee groups... Council/Committees. Ask them to say:
"My church is important to me because__________"
"My church's mission and ministry is_________________"
"My dream for what my church could be is________________"
Or... place a flipchart or tack a large piece of paper to the wall of your church with the title "My Dream for the Church is..." Encourage people to jot down their dreams.
Or... encourage your pastor to include some type of dreaming exercise in their sermon.
Or... Partner with a neighboring congregation (Lutheran or otherwise) to dream what the church could be.
Or...Hold a 'Dreaming Potluck' meal and dream while you eat.
Or...Have a roving reporter interview individuals about their dreams for the church.
Or... Dream visually--an art project or collage where people can express their dreams.
Or...Start a Facebook Page for your congregation or conference to share dreams or join the Dream Team Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/SaskSynodDreamTeam
Or... Place a dream bucket at the back of the sanctuary with papers and pens.
This is a challenging and exciting time for our church. With your help, with your dreams we will go together as God is leading us.
Please forward all of your dreams to the Dream Team
