Community of Christ's field-based LCM program piloted its first group of sessions in the fall of 2012. Congregation leaders throughout the US have made the commitment to attend the seven weekend sessions over the course of three years and incorporate the practices into their congregations. Through the workshops and the monthly meetings this group is learning the importance of functioning as a team, sharing in missional practices, and discussing and discerning essential questions. Contrary to everything we've heard before the key to leadership is to "slow down." The goal is not to quickly check off as many things on our to-do list as possible, but to focus on loving God, loving one another, and loving our neighbors first. This exciting new program is helping to develop a new understanding of what it means to be missional and relational with each other as well as extend invitation, hospitality and healing to those in our neighborhoods and beyond.

The nature of God is to love and bless. God's blessing comes through many avenues, such as family, friends, nature, music, or the written word. God desires to further bless you with a personal and specific blessing at key moments in your life journey:
Anyone who longs for and is willing to prepare for a closer and more intimate encounter with God may receive a blessing. The sacrament of blessing is available to members and friends of Community of Christ.
