Next Church was launched several years ago to nurture leaders, congregations and conversations about an imaginative future for the Presbyterian church (U.S.A.) I am grateful to have been on the ground floor of all this, and grateful to see how Next has evolved. We do lots of things — including an annual national gathering. This year’s conference in Kansas City focused on the theme of “Wells and Walls.” My little contribution was a seven minute Ignite presentation on the current relevance of the Confession of 1967 and its timely focus on reconciliation. Here are the PowerPoint slides. Visit www.nextchurch.net for gathering videos and much more.
