As a church leadership we’re away on a day of retreat today, taking some time to reflect back and look forward. We’ve invited some “boat rockers” or “out of the box” thinkers to join us; people in the church who we sense will provoke and challenge us and help us avoid group think.

We are also going to be trying an idea from Stephen Said, using de Bono’s 6 hats to aid our reflection and critical thinking. The programme for our day is here; the left column is the days tasks, the right column is reflection material including our aim, values, multi-congregational model.

  1. I love that you planned to pray at the beginning. So often in these forward planning meeting situations the reflection and listening to God is lost as I try to get everyone to hear me. It is wonderful to remember that it is a listening and obeying time rather than an “I want” time. Hope it was fruitful.
