Connecting Circles Kick-off Event

Saturday, September 6, starting at 10am    -    St. Andrew’s is in the process of launching a new program.  The idea for Connecting Circles comes out of the Long Range Planning committee and was discussed at a well attended potluck luncheon in June.
The intention is to have small groups (8-10) dispersed geographically around the Austin area, meeting monthly in facilitators’ or members’ homes. Pastor Jim Rigby will be writing the materials that will be the basis for discussion in each of the groups, with the idea of discovering better how to talk about progressive theology and radical love and to reclaim some of the symbols of Christianity.  Getting to know each other in a more intimate setting is also a wonderful motivation to join in Connecting Circles.
We are identifying potential facilitators who will participate in a training session in August (to be video taped in case of schedule conflicts). The format of the groups and the basis for the facilitator training will be Christine Baldwin’s “The Circle Way:  A Leader in Every Chair.”  The actual launch date for wider church participation, including training and in-depth discussion of what to expect of this program will be Saturday, September 6th at St. Andrew’s, lunch and dinner provided.
We hope you will consider joining us on Saturday, September 6th to meet the facilitators and to hear more from Pastor Jim about the materials to be discussed each month.  For more information, please contact Allison Thompson at allison.b.thompson@utexas.edu.  More information to come!
