Faith In Action: Authority in Our Congregation, Workshop 3: Power And Authority

In "Harvest the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

Investigate the ways your congregation authorizes its leaders (board members, committee chairs and members, religious education teachers, youth advisors and so on). Does a formal ceremony or ritual make the congregation's expectations of leaders explicit and initiate the empowerment of leaders? Consider working with the minister and/or a small task force to create rituals to make transparent the relational nature of authority in your congregation.
