"The Long Road - from Genocide to Grace" - Brian McConaghy
A presentation outlining the devastating history of Cambodia that makes it the country it is today. The challenge of profound trauma and the slow work of transformation. After 25 years of work we can find Joy even in the killing fields of Cambodia.
"Being Present for those with Mental Health Problems" - Snowy Noble and Deana Verge
When the decision to de-institutionalize Mental Illness was made several decades ago, people suffering from these afflictions have been redirected from Asylums (Psychiatric Hospitals) to General Hospitals - "Transinstitutionalization", and Community Centres. This shift in Mental Health care has created challenges for families and society at large often leaving the sufferers on the fringes of margins without adequate support. The faith community is a place where people with Mental Health problems can begin to find a place to belong.
"Pastoral Issues of the 21st Century" - Mark Novak
Helping congregations have hard conversations in an effort to better care for folks in our communities.
"Building a Leadership Team that Works" - Tim Beadle
Exploring not only how God has wired each one of us for ministry, but the importance of working together..
