Join the Conversation

April 27, 2020 by Lee Hinson-Hasty

Listening and watching congregational leaders grapple with how to serve during this pandemic inspired me to convene live conversations on Facebook to resource them during this unprecedented moment. Leaders across the country and the Church have graciously donated their time and expertise to reflect on pastoring, spirituality and scripture in the context of a pandemic. Each dialogue has intellectually engaging and emotionally moving.

These conversations will continue into the foreseeable future, and we’ll keep an up-to-date schedule here with our upcoming guests listed.

Our upcoming guest:

Tune in Wednesday, September 23 at 1 p.m. for a conversation with Rev. Eustacia Moffett Marshall and Rev. Dr. Jerry Cannon about Mentoring in Ministry.
