What are the burning questions in our congregation at this moment?

Reframe those questions which are leadership questions.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

After conversation with a partner, reframe your leadership questions again.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

After conversation with a partner, compose two or three questions together that blend or include questions from both of your lists. (If you and your partner are not from the same congregation, use this time to articulate for one another how your questions get at the heart of the big issues facing your particular congregation.)

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Reframe your questions or add related (or sub-) questions that elicit positive responses (e.g., naming the congregation's strengths), rather than negative responses (e.g., naming the congregation's problems). ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
