  • 21. Add a Personal Touch … It sounds like a good move for you, so I'm glad about that. I certainly know about the pulls of family--that's how I ended up in Virginia myself (my parents had retired to Virginia Beach, where my mom is still. And at her age it is comforting to be able to be there in 2 ½ hours when necessary). I can't tell you how sorry I am to be losing you and your family, but I'll hope to get the chance to try when I see you in person. And I definitely plan to make the most out of your remaining six months here….
  • 22. Add a Personal Touch … Thank you for your question. I have loved watching you become a grandmother. The photos of the twins on Facebook are adorable, and I can feel your bright energy when I see you in person. I can’t wait until it’s my turn! (Not to rush anything…!)…
  • 23. Make it Personal
  • 24. DESIGNING FOR SOCIAL • Don’t be a bullhorn • Integrate with programs, goals, strategies • Be people focused, not institutionally focused
  • 25. Language Audit: January 1. Choose one communication ‘artifact’ that is relevant to your congregation’s focus for this year. 2. Use our lens to heighten awareness about the overt and covert messages that may be expressed or inferred – and explore what changes you might consider as part of your journey as a Connected Congregation. – Analyze, empathize, role play, brainstorm, explore. – And then SHARE!
