In this episode, I explore the fifth of the Five Signs of the Parish Movement, “Linking Across Parishes,” by talking about what the Apostle Paul teaches us about linking, why linking is a spiritual discipline, and three ways neighborhood church expressions can practice linking across parishes.

Series Summary: Parish church expressions are emerging in neighborhoods everywhere. Whatever they are called – neighborhood church plants, missional communities, neomonastic communities, faith-based social enterprises – these diverse expressions seem to exhibit five common signs as they join God’s renewal in their particular places. In this five part series, I explore the Five Signs of the Parish Movement:
- Centering on Christ
- Inhabiting Our Parish
- Gathering to Remember
- Collaborating for God’s Renewal
- Linking Across Parishes
Linking Across Parishes: Actively connecting with other Christian communities across parishes regionally and globally, we grow in mutual learning, friendship, and life giving partnership.
