Rev. Lori Mills-Curran preached earlier in the month at St Andrews in Framingham. Here is an excerpt from her sermon. The parish's LDI work has appeared in the news as well. As many of you know, the diocese is sponsoring a new training resource for parishes called the Leadership Development Initiative. We have taken a parish team to it once, and have now fielded a second team. The Episcopal Church is filled with uncertainty these days. The LDI is designed to help parishes achieve helpful change in the face of uncertainty. The LDI makes you think a lot about how and why you do things, and whether you could do them better. It’s wonderful.
A recent resource has come my way via a member of our current LDI team. It has really intrigued me. It's an article about how our brains work. The person who wrote the article is a neuroscientist, someone who studies how brains function. The information in the article is relevant for the LDI, and it's relevant for today's scripture.
