Everyday Leadership: Faithfully Staying On-Course In An Off-Course World
We live in an increasingly complex and confrontational time. Navigating this time requires leadership from everyday people which is practiced every day. You’re invited to participate in a workshop, illustrated with Scripture and contemporary examples, that will explore what it takes to build the kind of resilient spirit that can face today's challenges with the peace of Christ.
This workshop consists of 5, 90-minute sessions led by Pastor Dan. Each session will be presented twice. The first presentation will be on Sunday afternoons at 3pm. The second, and identical, presentation will be held on Monday evenings at 5:45pm. Childcare will be provided at both Sunday and Monday sessions. Sunday 3pm sessions will include snacks. Monday 5:45pm sessions will include an optional meal. Please register so that we might be adequately prepared.

We are the body of Christ. Just like a human body, a congregation experiences variation in its condition over time. We go through periods of learning, growth, illness, loss, hope, recovery, and challenge. Looking at the history of Israel and the early church, remembering that the Holy Spirit always accompanies us, and being open to learning, we can achieve greater spiritual health to better face the challenges of the future. The best part, and sometimes the hardest part, is that we all have a part. That’s where “Everyday Leadership” comes in.
Was Moses always happy as a leader? Were the people Moses was leading always happy? Did Paul ever write to churches where everything was going smoothly? Does Jesus give us instructions on how to win an argument? Did the early church of Acts always see eye-to-eye on moral issues? The answer to all these questions is, of course,
no. But, through it all God was, is, and will be faithful to give us even greater things such as the fruit of the Spirit, and the peace of Christ.
