Dear Leland friends!
“I wanted to pass along our news as a Leland Alumna. Convergence is currently the featured article on Duke Divinity School’s Faith & Leadership online magazine”. https://www.faithandleadership.com/art-and-faith-converge-hybrid-churchcommunity-arts-center?utm_source=FL_newsletter&utm_medium=content&utm_campaign=FL_topstory
They read about us in the recently published book Divergent Church: The Bright Promise of Alternative Faith Communities (Abingdon Press). http://www.abingdonpress.com/product/9781501842597#.WsUQz4jwZdg
I hope that you feel joy as well, since, it is in large part due to Leland and the encouragement of the faculty, staff and students that we are even here. God blessed me with the right teachers, encourages and challengers at just the right time in my life and I am grateful to have had the seminary experience I did. Thank you! Please let me know if there is any way I can be of service by sharing some of what we’ve learned, encouraging, etc. I would really appreciate it if you would share this news with Leland Alumnae, students and supporters. I certainly know how important encouragement and knowing you aren’t “alone” in doing things differently can be.
