As you probably read in the December SPIRE I have been working on our first Mosaic gathering. The event will be held on December 19th at 7pm in the church Parlor. I made special invitations and save-the-date cards for the party and sent them out late November. I have received a good response of RSVP’s and hope to have anywhere from 10-15 people.
The purpose of this gathering is to socialize with each other (I will have games and conversations starters to accompany wine and dessert) and to cast collective vision of what Mosaic will become. I will facilitate group brain-storming and vision-developing exercises to draw out the diverse perspectives and possibilities that emerge from the group. We will have a much better idea of how Mosaic will continue, who will participate, and what it’s gatherings will look like after this event.
I plan on updating our current conversation on the Mosaic project through occasional email updates, the Midweek Message, the Spire, and in person on Sundays. If you have any ideas on how I might best communicate with the church and at what frequency, please let me know, that would be very helpful!
