Prepare the Way of the Lord!

In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. – Isaiah 40: 3

It’s been an interesting season to be the church, at times feeling like we are indeed in a wilderness. We are certainly weary of the ongoing pandemic and the divisions that separate us, so let’s focus our energies on doing the important work to “prepare the way of the Lord.” What highways can we build? How can we prepare for the church that is even now emerging? And how can we continue to minister to others, whether in our buildings or online, or both?

Beginning February 25th, Leadership Focus 2021 will offer an opening series, a closing series, and a variety of standalone workshops your congregational leaders will find particularly useful right now, as we explore what it means to be Church beyond the pandemic. We are especially happy to announce that we’ll be partnering with the Northern Province’s Healthier Moravian Congregations Task Force this year to produce this event. The task force facilitates the resourcing of congregations and works on projects to inform the work of developing healthier practices in our congregations.
