CLC Listening & Healing Mtg #2

August 16, 2020

Online meeting

CLC LISTENING AND HEALING UPDATE:  

"so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it."1 Corinthians 12: 25-26

Meeting #1 was held on 6/14 and it went well. People overall were surprised there were such big gaps of information - which we were able to narrow as a result of this meeting. While gaps remain, we look forward to dreaming  together for the future of CLC.

Would you like to be part of this process? If so, you are welcome to join Meeting #2, which is intended for those who are open to change and looking to the future. Topics include: better communication channels and understanding how decisions are made.

This gathering will be open to anyone in the congregation, but the requirement will be that you send in a letter to clclistens@ gmail.com (and have read others' letters) so that we are all on the same page.

We are united in our love of God and love of one another. We pray for mutual grace and understanding. Questions? Contact Quess Liu.

Goals include:

  • Increase mutual understanding and get to a place of open and honest dialogue
  • Continue to close gaps in information (as needed). We will continue to have a space for sharing of past information but the focus will be on the future.
  • Forward-looking, practical approach to change/solutions
  • Dream together for CLC’s future

Details:

  • Zoom meeting facilitated by L&H core team (Quess, Jane, Linda, Cecil)
  • Format:
  • Q&A: Both the board and congregation members submit questions before Meeting #2.
  • L&H core team consolidates questions & shares them in advance. While some questions may be directed at the Board, we imagine some questions to be answered by the group as a whole.
