On April 19, we, once again, met with Joanne Yelle Whetherall of CRS (Canadian Religious Stewardship) to continue the conversation about our future. Joanne shared about what is happening in Canada with various communities and about the many different possibilities available, tailored to each congregation. There were clarifications about what has already happened, for example, the hiring of Tracy Marple. There was a discussion about the need to get "rid of stuff" and to look at letting go of "stuff".
When asked what needs to happen in the next year, the obvious answer was that we need to look at governance. It was a good meeting, but there is still a lot of work to do.
