Helping congregations have more meaningful and creative conversations about resources

A free toolkit from the “Shifting Ground” initiative, “Let’s Talk About Resources” uses case studies, games and reflective discussion questions to facilitate creative conversations about how congregations can use their resources in service to their local community.

It can be used online or in person. These resources were co-created by Lake Institute on Faith & Giving and the innovative design team at RootedGood.
