- need to rediscover the teaching role of the church in society

- interest in discerning the ELCIC's place in secular society's interest in the spiritual

Hopes for the Church:

- to be more engaged in the world; to be a more visible, unapologetic presence in our communities, in Canada and in the world

- to be more intentional about the education of lay people in the ministries of the church
