Toolkit for Creating an Environment for a Reconciled Community
DescriptionTwo new tools assist churches to face the changing demographic reality. “40 Days to Jubilee,” which is centered on Isaiah 58, orients the church to become personally transformed into a community ready to engage their extended community in a relevant way. It is a whole-church, 40-day engagement including five sermons and synced cell group studies with practical applications. The second tool, “Community RoundTable,” assists our EFCA districts and churches to become a reconciliation catalyst. This booklet provides a biblical process for different communities gathering and exchanging points of views in a way that is engaging and learning how to do ministry in other contexts.

These are tools that are made to fill the gap between knowing that there are reconciliation issues but not knowing how to deal with it. In each of these tools, there is an emphasis on what do we do now. Orthodoxy will be matched with Orthopraxy resulting in Orthodance!
