Riverside Innovation Hub’s Cohort Springtime Learnings: A Time for Slowly Being Led by the Spirit

submitted by weber3@augsburg.edu

Our Riverside Innovation Hub Lead Facilitator Geoffrey Gill reflects on the past month’s cohort meetings with congregations. Geoffrey shares wisdom and learnings from these important gatherings.

As we breathe into the fullness of spring and our work becomes more and more rooted, it is clear that this work requires us to slow down, to be patient and to move at the pace of a growing flower. It may look slow and arduous at times, and this is the work of sowing seeds; we are like community gardeners for the public church and we are learning that this project moves at the pace of building trustworthy relationships. You can’t force this to work, and you can’t just bypass any important part because it makes you uncomfortable or you don’t understand it. What I’m finding inside of most congregations is this sense of needing things to speed up, there is this deep eagerness to spring forth and jump into action. And on the other hand God is calling us to slow down. Yes, move forward and take action, and don’t move so fast that you can’t smell the spring flowers. Don’t move so fast that you forget or bypass why you’re even doing this work. This time and space of work requires us to trust the flow of the process; to do all we can and then let the spirit do what it’s capable of doing.

So, In-between our large learning events RIH hosts smaller cohort meetings. These meetings focus on the art forms of the public church framework. All of the cohorts met this April. The intentions of these meetings were to build and deepen relational trust, reflect on the process of sharing learnings with the leadership in each congregation and expand more into the art form: interpretation.

Check out the rest of Geoffrey’s reflection on our CCV Blog: https://www.augsburg.edu/ccv/blog/ to learn more about the important work that our CCV team is doing.

Instructional Cost Cutting Continues

submitted by pike@augsburg.edu

Faculty should continue to send questions to the Budget Working Group and attend to the weekly reports from Senate President Andy Aoki. Progress has been made on meeting the cost cutting goal from courses and faculty reassignments. However, we are not there yet and the goal must be met. Additional decisions and cuts will still be made in the next few weeks and, of course, much depends on retention and enrollment achievements over the summer. Faculty attention and collaboration in reaching this goal is important and appreciated.
