In researching the term partner I found this interesting reference from a nautical image: A “partner” is heavy reinforcing framework of timbers secured to and strengthening the deck of a wooden ship around a hole for a mast.
Being a Canterbury Partner is just that, a solid, reinforcing framework supporting what we do and what happens on the Canterbury campus. We would not be able to have this ministry without the support of partners. By giving to Canterbury you strengthen our operation so we can navigate the seas of culture. We can’t do this on our own. As a non-profit mission and ministry we must rely on others for support and more. Without Partners the Canterbury operation is not sustainable.
Reflection: What partnerships do you have that strengthen you, or where you strengthen others? If you are in a partnership that is actually weakening you or pulling you away from your purpose, perhaps that’s a partnership that has outlived its usefulness.
Prayerfully consider investing in Canterbury’s mission, add the needed infrastructure to increase our reach into a world in need of sacred space to reflect, learn and grow.
