This week Dan O'Rourke, Father James Mallon, and Eric Myatt are joined by Gabriel Wanous and Chris Nolin of WorshipNOW. WorshipNOW provide parishes with support in pursuing music that inspires parishioners to sing praise to God. We know that music can have a huge impact on lives and yet we often fail to push ourselves in music ministry. The team from WorshipNOW share their story and dive into how we can move from maintenance to mission in music. 
This is the question that Ron Huntley, Rob McDowell, and Father James Mallon seek to answer this week. Scripture is one of the most powerful tools that we have access to within our parishes and this week the team speaks into how to get people to recognize this gift. We discuss why reading Scripture is so important and some ways to get people more engaged in this conversation with Christ. Scripture has often been seen as inaccessible to some and this week the team works to dispel that myth. Whether you’re starting a study plan for the first time or looking for a new way to connect, this is going to be a great one to tune into.If you’re looking for a great way to introduce people to Jesus before you introduce them to Scripture, check out Unlocking Your Parish: Making Disciples, Raising Up Leaders With Alpha by Ron Huntley and Father James Mallon.
We're joined once again by Tanya Noye from Saint Benedict Parish to chat about why it's so hard to invite people to your church. Tanya opens up about some of the reasons that Catholics struggle with invitation and why it's so important. There are some incredible personal stories in this week's podcast including the story of Tanya's husband accepting an invitation from an unlikely source. If you believe that your church could get a little help with moving through the struggles of invitation, this episode has some great actionable advice.
This week on the podcast we're joined by Tanya Noye who works with Alpha and Engagement with Saint Benedict Parish for a discussion on evangelization. Tanya shares the story of how she fell away from the Church and why she returned. She shares with us the story of how Alpha has impacted her family's life and why she believes that invitation is so key to the future of the Catholic Church. This is a great conversation for ministry leads, pastors, and lay people who want to better understand the purpose of invitation, engagement, and evangelization.

This week on Summer Shorts we’re very grateful to look back on our conversation with author Steve Foran. His book, “Surviving to Thriving: The Ten Laws of Grateful Leadership” help shine a light on some of the characteristics of great leaders that we may not have previously considered. We talk with Steve about his own story of becoming a grateful leader and why at every level of great leadership gratitude is a shared principle. This conversation helps reframe what a leader is and who the leaders are within our communities. This is such a unique viewpoint of leadership that we don’t consider nearly enough. If you want to learn more about Steve’s work and about his book, check out www.gratitudeatwork.ca.
Hospitality is something we take very seriously at Divine Renovation. It’s a ministry that we always recommend investing heavily in but sometimes the view from the inside is different than the view from the outside. Melanie Smollen of Faith Perceptions joins us on this episode of Summer Shorts to discuss “mystery shopping” at churches. What Melanie and her group have seen at churches across the continent should make us take a serious look at hospitality, especially as it relates to those who do not share our understanding of or history in the church. If you want to know what people think about your parish, have a seat and a listen.

Most people know that we have invested heavily in Alpha at Divine Renovation. We do so because we have found it to be the most effective tool for evangelization. This week we call on our conversation with the National Director for Catholic Context at Alpha USA, Josh Danis. Josh shares his insights on the state of the church in the United States. We ask some very tough questions about the challenges that the Church is facing, in the US and beyond, and Josh does an incredible job of inspiring hope in us for our future. This is a powerful and poignant conversation.

We get to talk to a large number of pastors on the podcast but it’s always interesting to hear the perspective of a few bishops. This week on Summer Shorts we talk with Bishop Thomas Dowd about some topics that most wouldn’t expect a Bishop to be talking about. Bishop Dowd speaks about social media, how he came to discern his calling, and what life is like for Bishops in Canada. This is a rare insight into church leadership that we think you’ll really enjoy.
