“Everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new.”
All of us are learning what life looks like as we worship and serve during a global pandemic. Already we are wondering what of this new way of being we will take with us into a faithful and creative future as the pandemic subsides.
How can we avoid the pitfalls of going back to “normal”? How will we do this work sustainably, exercising care and kindness toward ourselves and others? How do we — as the church — move from survival mode to one of thriving, even as the situation around us is devastatingly challenging?
MaryAnn McKibben Dana, a pastor, speaker, and Associate Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation, is facilitating group coaching cohorts to engage these and related questions. We will work with tools of adaptive leadership, design thinking, and improvisation. Participants will learn from one another, develop individual goals and plans, and support one another in a spirit of accountability.
