Diana Butler-Bass at the Trinity Cathedral

I had the good fortune to to be invited to capture a day long workshop by Diana Butler-Bass, author of Christianity for the Rest of Us: How the Neighborhood Church is Transforming Itself". The event was sponsored by the Presbytery of Western Reserve and held at Trinity Cathedral in Downtown Cleveland. Being in this amazing Cathedral was great experience - massive columns, stone statuary and magnificent stained glass. As I set up my boards against this majestic backdrop, I kind of chuckled knowing that my final product would be made of markers, paper and chalk.

Diana was a great speaker and held the audience the whole day. I was particularly impressed, by the model she outlined as a tool for churches and I would anyone, to look at who they are. It centered around:

Practice (doing)
Tradition (remembering)
Tradition (knowing)
