David Johns: How do we attend to new growth?

David Johns: How do we attend to new growth? Recently a new Facebook group began gathering together folks with an interest in this very thing–”Quaker Church-Planters.” That’s an idea we don’t hear much about these days! After the burst of corporate-business patterned ‘church growth’ that blazed through in the 1980′s there hasn’t been much public discussion, among Quakers at least, about “planting”… Continue

Robin Mohr: Let People Know You're a Quaker
