MODEM Conference 2019- Losing Control: Enabling Withness

  • Course Dates: Thu 21 November, 12:00 pm to Fri 22 November, 2:00 pm

MODEM Conference 2019

This conference, in partnership with the Susanna Wesley Foundation, will explore ideas Sam Wells has developed in his recent books and how these can relate to ideas from organisation studies about the emergence and non-imperialistic forms of organising and non-control and relate these to experience and wisdom from local churches.

We will be exploring ideas that Sam Wells has been developing in ‘A Nazareth Manifesto: Being with God’ (2015), ‘Incarnational ministry: being with the church’ (2017) and ‘Incarnational Mission: Being with the World’ (2018), and how these can relate to ideas from organisation studies about emergence and non-imperialistic forms of organising and non-control. We shall be relating these ideas to experience and wisdom from local churches. A Nazareth Manifesto has been described as ‘nothing less than a call to rethink Christian witness and mission, based on a profound retelling of our relationship with each other and God’. This conference is an opportunity to think together about how church organization might better facilitate such a retelling. The ideas follow on naturally from our consideration of witness in Modem’s 2017 conference and asset-based community organization in the 2018 conference.
