Have you found inspiration and help in books, videos, podcasts, or from hearing about the experiences of other congregations? Are you willing to share a success or learning from your congregation with others? Your experience, recommendation or story might be just the thing another congregation needs as we seek to learn from one another in the Wisconsin Conference.

A message from Rev. Tisha Brown
I love stories! I love telling them, reading and listening to them and am a devoted fan of a number of story-telling podcasts.
I love how stories open us up to the lives and experiences of others. They reveal opportunities, possibilities and limitless worlds beyond what we already know. Stories help us understand and learn from one another and they often stretch us and challenge us to grow or expand our worlds.
As we continue to live into our conference’s SHIFT: From Maintenance to Mission Initiative, we want to lift up as many stories as possible so that we can see more clearly what God is doing in the Wisconsin Conference to transform lives and change our world.
As we share our stories with one another we know that resources and ideas will emerge from unexpected places. We are confident that hope and enthusiasm for what God is doing in our midst will grow. We believe that our sense of what is possible will expand and we will surprise ourselves with our own strength, vitality and courage in facing the challenges and embracing the opportunities of this time and place.
So don’t wait another moment. Don’t second guess the inspiration you feel right now. Reach out, share your story. We can’t wait to see what God is up to in Wisconsin!
