Taking It Home, Workshop 4: The Verdant Springs – Reformation

In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program

Religious reform can never be all at once, but gradually, step by step. If they offer something better, I will gladly learn. — Francis David

Consider the types of reform you have discussed in this workshop—the reformation of ideas, the reformation of ways of doing things, the reformation of organizations. Does it seem that a wide, systemic change follows individual change—that one person or a small group changes, and then encourages others toward the same change? Consider one change you might like to make in your own life. Is it a change of belief or behavior? Values or action? What causes you to want to make this change? Do you think that if you accomplished this change it would ripple out beyond you to influence your friends, family, or associates? How could a change you make in yourself affect the beliefs, the methods, or the infrastructure of a group to which you belong?
