There was a lot of energy at the AI Dream Summit, Part 2
Thank You to the Bryn Athyn Community!
Thanks to the people who turned out on Saturday morning! Your energy and the caring and thoughtful presence created an atmosphere of hope and possibility that was an inspiration to experience.
Building on the work from the March 24 Summit meeting, we added one new topic, and deleted one topic. Here is the final list:
- The Lord/Word as Center
- An Inclusive Community
- A Community Center that Connects Us
- Fiscal Responsibility: It’s a Two-Way Street
- Service and Volunteering: Honoring and Engaging Everyone’s Time, Talent and Treasure to Benefit People Inside and Outside the Church
- Support for the International Church
- Supported and Expanded Universal Education Efforts – Pre-K to End of Life
- Wise Use of Land
- Women and Men Sharing Leadership
- Variety of Spiritual Practices
- A Welcoming Church: Outreach
- Improved Relationships Among All Bryn Athyn Institutions
- Involved Young People
- Broad Influence and Transparency in Decision-Making
Participants broke up into groups, creating "Aspiration Statements" which provide more detail around the topics. The groups will finalize these statements over the next two weeks. We'll break for the summer, and then reconvene in the fall to make plans to realize these dreams!
