Leadership and Anxiety in the Church: A Family Systems Perspective
Led by Dr. Richard Blackburn, director, Lombard Mennonite Peace Center—February 1 at the Presbytery office
Using works of art, Scripture and stories from the contemporary church, Dr. Blackburn looks at the challenge presented by the rising levels of anxiety being experienced in churches today, as well as the role that leadership can play in calming such anxiety. Enrollment is limited so register now. Scholarships are available and lunch will be provided.
Who will benefit:Pastors, Church Council / Vestry / Session members, Pastor-Parish Committees, Personnel Committees and judicatory leaders of all denominations. The workshop would be especially helpful if a team made up of clergy, staff, and lay leadership from a congregation would attend the event together.
