A few weeks ago a friend and I spent 45 minutes together on a Skype call. He is working with faith communities. He knows that I have done significant work with faith communities. He wanted to explore some of that.
We did. We explored some of the dynamics. Some key questions. Some important assumptions. It was really quite enjoyable.
But it was his last statement when checking out of our call that really caught my attention. “I don’t know what the answer is, but I want to be involved in the mystery.”
Beautiful. Enough said. That’s what friends are for (even when in teams and congregations).
