Quite a few years back now, one of my favourite blogs was “Church in a Circle” by Kath. She and her husband were part of an alternative church in Western Australia and the blog contained some of her insights into how to allow everyone to be involved in church meetings, rather than be passive consumers.
It had so many useful and practical ideas. And then one day it was hacked and it disappeared.
I missed it, but found I was able to see many of its pages again on The Wayback Machine. And so, with Kath’s permission, I am re-publishing some of the best posts.
This will be the index page for these old posts.
