Our May 4 Presbytery meeting was filled with possibilities! For the first time the body broke into simultaneous breakout discussion groups on amendments, emerging passions, and creating innovation. Howard Mason (New Possibilities Associates), retained by PSNE's Church Development Committee, was with us to help us create the conditions for creativity, innovation and emergence.
