Announcing the new Clergy Renewal blog

Feb 27, 2013 | Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs


The Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs (CRP) have helped hundreds of congregations and pastors across the United States renew themselves for vital ministry. The work of these programs rests upon deep conviction that the biblical concept of “Sabbath” and appreciation for the Spirit’s work of renewing ministry are powerful resources for sustaining pastoral excellence.

Our new Clergy Renewal blog features ongoing reflection by CRP staff, past grant recipients, and friends of the program on matters related to spirituality, rest, and the role(s) of congregational ministry in the 21st century.

We invite you to read, reflect, and imagine how God might be calling your congregation into renewed possibilities.

    I just started my sabbatical today. I want to visit, experience and talk with colleagues serving larger congregations with a vibrant worship life and engaging faith formation for the 21st century. Where do you recommend that I visit or talk with?
