Participant's Guide and Daily Journal
ReConnecting is a seven-week or seven-session experience designed to get congregational small groups in touch with historical (Wesleyan) roots and contemporary cultural forces, so that an individual can embrace his or her "priesthood." This experience also provides an envelope for a church vision and for strategic planning used throughout a congregation and based in prayer and identity formation. The use of the seven-session experience may be customized based on the churches' vision and need â€"to stimulate a frozen congregation, to deploy as an adult group Lenten activity, or to revisit a Wesleyan heritage.

"This timely and welcome resource is recommended through my office for clergy and laity who have come into The United Methodist Church from other denominations. It is being well received, not least because it opens many windows for dialogue with lifelong Methodists who are not always aware of the richness of their spiritual heritage."
