Read what happened when several small Indiana congregations hosted an event to discuss the impact intentional positivity had on their communities, on the website of the Center for Congregations, an Indianapolis-based organization that strengthens Indiana congregations by helping them find and use the best resources to address their challenges and opportunities. The Center shares its learning with a national audience.
