Lenten Meditation on the Way of Obedience

 
"Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in your sight (Psalm 19). Help us to follow your commandments (Exodus 20:1-17) and fully believe and embrace the teachings of Jesus (John 2:13-22). Help us to remember that God makes foolish the wisdom of the world (1 Corinthians 1:18-25). " 
-Thomas Oden, Ancient Christian Devotional [More from the Liturgy Letter].

Sermon Resources from In Trust

In Trust Center For Theological Schools

 
    In Trust Center for Theological Schools, a nonprofit membership organization supports North American theological school boards and administrators through various services. 
 
   How To Hire Consultants. Contributors to this resource guide are: Rebekah Burch Basinger, independent consultant; Anthony Ruger, interim co-director of the Auburn Center for the Study of Theological Education and the Center’s senior research fellow; and Barbara Wheeler, past president of Auburn Theological Seminary and founding director of the Auburn Center for the Study of Theological Education. Because faith-based institutions are unique, they rarely benefit from consultants who offer prepackaged presentations that feature generic data and lead to predictable conclusions.   In Trust created this resource to help you think through the critical questions that must be considered as you consider embarking on the process of finding and hiring a consultant. 
 
   In Trust Topic Resources. Excellent archive of the In Trust magazine’s articles with a searchable index to find just the article and resource you might need to assist in guiding your Seminary’s governance.  This resource might also be helpful for thinking about improvements to Church, Mosque and Synagogue governing boards as well.  Topic areas include: Board chairs, Dashboards, Financial health, Strategic planning, Fundraising, Mergers / partnerships / affiliations, Orientation, Presidential evaluation, Shared governance, and Board evaluation.
 
   The In Trust Blog Resources can be found here.A few of these blog topics might be good resources.

Anglican Archbishop’s Lenten prayer book Written by a Catholic Priest

For those that have followed the close collaboration and friendship between Pope Francis and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, it's no surprise that the spiritual head of the Church of England selected a Roman Catholic priest's manuscript for his 2018 Lenten prayer book.
