The Journey Inward

 Journey Inward.  In her book Journey Inward, Journey Outward (Harper and Row, 1968), Elizabeth O’Conner shared the way The Church of Our Savior in Washington, DC went about being church. She noted that churches had become so concerned about numbers that concern for each individual person with whom the church came in contact was being lost.  She made the case that the renewal of the church “cannot come to the church unless its people are on an inward journey” while holding “with equal emphasis that renewal cannot come to the church unless its people are on an outward journey.”  Journey language is important in to help us reflect on who we are and what we are becoming. 2012_03_25_message
