SERVANT LEADERSHIP – NOT A CLICHE

LIVING IN A #METOO WORLD
Major Leisa Hall, Kelly Hall
A seminar creating space for conversation around sexual abuse, exploitation and harassment and how we can respond in healthy ways and move forward as advocates.
LONG DISTANCE RUNNING FOR JUSTICE AND RECONCILIATION
Once we are awakened to the need for justice and reconciliation, we begin to see the need everywhere — in ourselves, congregations, families, workplaces, and communities. Our passionate awareness often leads us in many courageous battles for justice, but if we’re not careful, we will quickly burn out. How do we train to become long-distance runners for justice and reconciliation? How do we cope with pain, setback, and disillusionment? What are the spiritual and communal practices that will sustain us beyond the life of a hashtag or en vogue social issue? This workshop will explore these questions and more.
A/C Julia McDowell
God is stirring us to take our prayers beyond the walls of our church buildings. During this on-site prayer walk, participants will learn to pray beyond their own concerns, focusing prayer on behalf of their neighbors.
