On A Boat

When starting a new community, finding a public place to meet can be difficult. It's easier in some contexts than others but it many it can be an expensive and difficult endeavor. Part of the difficulty lies only in the limits of our creativity.

When Dave Pilkington was commissioned to plant a new church in London he was faced with the limits of available public space to meet in. The solution? Planted a year ago, St. Columba meets on a boat.

The genius of this is resourcefulness not novelty.

Novelty wears off. Resourcefulness points to a greater cause that drives one towards innovative problem solving.

Listen to an interview with Pilkington hosted by Bishop Sarah Mullaly of the Diocese of London.
