Faithful Risk Taking with Ben Johnston-Krase

22 October, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

How might we shift the cultures of our faith communities toward vitality, connection, and care with neighbors by initiating small, life-giving micro-risks? We invite you to a time of connection with Ben Johnston-Krase, consultant for faith communities and co-planter of Farm Church, a church that meets on a farm and leverages all the resources of that farm to address food insecurity in Durham, North Carolina.

Sometimes, our faith communities find themselves stuck in a mindset of, “but we’ve always done it that way.” What’s possible when we take micro-risks to expand possibilities? Ben Johnston-Krase defines a micro-risk as, “an easy to try, fun to play with, ok-if-you-fail small risk that, when combined with other micro-risks over time, nurtures a culture of faithful, strategic risk-taking – the kind of culture we need in our spiritual communities.”

Please RSVP to roederer@umich.edu if you are interested to join us, and we will send you the Zoom information. You can connect with us over video or over the phone.
