Leader Resource 2: Chauncy's Theology in the Congregation
This is a 30-minute activity.
Invite participants to explore ways Chauncy's theology might illuminate the place of spirituality in your congregation. Use these questions as a guide:
- How does our congregation pay attention to spirituality development?
- Are we intentional in the ways in which we seek to move the spirit and grow people's faith? Is it our expectation and intention that when people are moved spiritually, it will change the ways in which they act in the world? Does it happen?
- What opportunities and challenges would be presented by an increased attention to spirituality development in our congregation?
- Are there groups in our congregation who might be invited to share their skills, knowledge and experience in spirituality development with the broader congregation? Possibilities include youth groups, young adult groups, and women's spirituality groups.
