About the Blog
Center Letter Blog is for the questioning and thinking church leader. It taps into the church’s rich biblical-theological heritage along with thoughtful analysis of the contemporary context. It seeks to cultivate faith communities discerning their participation in God’s mission. Inagrace Dietterich, Director for Theological Research at the Center for Parish Development, is the primary contributor and posts on a monthly basis. Each year the staff of the Center for Parish Development collaborate with a theologian / scholar / activist who walks with us shaping the focus of the annual missional church convocation in July. The fruit of our work together gives direction to the blog themes from year to year, and their convocation presentations are posted here.
