“Too often we limit what God wants to do in our midst because we can’t see how it will happen. Hopeful Imagination is about being obedient to what God is calling us to do that is beyond our ability to accomplish on our own.” [Queen and Davis. Hopeful Imagination, 2014]
Congregations seeking to transform recognize, expect, look for, discern, accept, and affirm the presence of God’s Holy Spirit working in and through the lives of people throughout the congregation–even when God’s presence does not seem obvious. Without such trust in God transformation is impossible. Human effort is insufficient for transformation.
