Detox Begins with Organizational Values

A good example of this process of defining organizational values is the work of the strategic discernment team at Chapelwood. Led by "clarity evangelist" Will Mancini, we set out to uncover the values that really define us. With God's grace as the operative theme, the new mission statement reads: "To embody God's grace as we receive it to those who need it."

This is connected to reality is via the Chapelwood examen, and very portable and useful in any and all of our groups:
  • Since we last met, how have you received God's grace?
  • Who have you encountered in need of God's grace?
  • How have you embodied God's grace?
This ensures that the value of grace is not only talked about, but thought about, acted on, and, in short, embodied in our own unique way.
