Judicatory Relationships

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Greetings Readers! I’m sorry to have been so silent these past few weeks. It’s the end of the program year and that’s a very busy time in the life of an Alban consultant. Every client needs us onsite in late May and early June to get in one last piece of work before the summer hiatus begins. I’ll be back and posting more regularly in a few more weeks when my travel schedule slows down. I’m picking up lots of new conversation topics along the way to introduce on the blog.  So, keep posted.

In the meantime, today I ran across this interesting essay on the website of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research. It’s  authored by Loren Mead and addresses the dynamics in the relationship between large and wealthy congregations and their middle judicatories. It’s long, but worth the read!
