Traditioned Innovation brings communities together

St. Lydia’s in Brooklyn is a church grounded in both early Christian practice and modern urban living. Named for the hospitable woman in the book of Acts, St. Lydia’s holds services that are both informal and structured and that revolve around the preparation, consumption and cleanup of a common meal. Carefully formulated ecclesiology creates order while allowing flexibility and variation in the particulars, and connection to both the Lutheran (ELCA) and Episcopal traditions provides additional structure, with external accountability and support. To learn more about this innovative blend of traditional and emergent church, access the article, complete with questions, hosted on Faith & Leadership, an online resource from Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School. Learn more about the concept of traditioned innovation on the Faith & Leadership website.
