An invitation from Rev. Canon Michael Ambler:
As you know from our meeting last May, Living Local is an adventure into new ways of connecting with our neighbors. Think of it as a trek into unknown territory, supported by expert outfitters, in company with one another and congregations from three partner dioceses.
The process started with the gathering we shared last May, when we learned about changes in the relationship between the church and the world, looked observantly at the neighborhood surrounding Christ Church, and outlined the Living Local journey.
Now that summer’s end is on the horizon, it’s time to move ahead.
Next up is a gathering and training session on Saturday, October 1. This is for all congregations contemplating the Living Local journey. You’ll learn more about Living Local, and get trained to take first steps. These first steps will be about discernment and preparation; those who continue on after this will then begin the two year journey starting first thing in the New Year.
We expect this meeting will be in the Augusta area; specifics TBA in the next couple of weeks. Time will probably be 10-3, but that too will get firmed up soon. For now, hold the date! And don’t hesitate to contact either Michael Ambler at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jane Hartwell at email@example.com with questions or wonderments.
The Rev. Cn. Michael Ambler
Canon to the Ordinary
