Remind & Renew January 24-25, 2018
Resilient Leaders, Resilient Congregations

For Remind & Renew 2018, we're going to be dealing with the intersection of brain research, congregational life, change, conflict, and resilience. These days are very hard for doing ministry in congregational contexts. We would like to help our conference participants find a little more resilience for the challenges they face.

Some topics that may be discussed include: 

  • Brain research as it applies to conflict and change
  • How Christian practices (e.g., meditation) can positively affect brain development
  • Diversity, moral reasoning, and the gut brain
  • How to have the conflicts we need to have, and avoid those that weaken persons and communities?
  • Practices that strengthen individual and community resilience (resilience as primarily the strength to persevere through adversity, with one's whole self)
  • Where the field of congregations-as-family systems has gone since many of us first read Friedman or Steinke

Discussions will be broken into three blocks of time, approximately two hours a piece, divided into a lecture/presentation with an interactive activity with participants. And, as is always the case with R&R, there will be two worship occasions and time to meet old friends and make some new ones.

We look forward to seeing you at Phillips in January 2018.
