Forum 7.2 - Identifying and Nurturing Gifts
Identifying and Nurturing Gifts
I hear and share some of that frustration! My current church sounds very similar in that I feel very much like an outsider still and not aware of past history and gifts everyone else seems to know. (have you read "Open Secrets"? that is what I think I am in the midst of!)
However, I have picked up on some gifts from new members and I am trying to take seriously holding that knowledge in trust for us all since the old timers don't know them very well yet.
There are some really good gifts identification tools out there and I want to explore ones that are good for older, more established, smaller congregations.
