Join us this week as we continue our conversation on how the church must address issues of racism, and help people develop cross-cultural competence for engaging across lines of difference. In addition, we’ll continue to explore how pastors and congregants can apply these competencies to issues in the workplace, neighborhood, and local economy, engaging in what Latasha Morrison has called, “being the bridge.”
Community Partnerships That Transform Neighborhoods – Pastors and Faith Leaders as Wealth Managers (Hampton Roads)
What makes Russell Place Special? Do we have similar neighborhoods in our cities that could benefit from this model?

We live in anxiety-inducing times. We love predictability, and the current cultural and societal climate is anything but predictable. Will I or someone I love get sick from coronavirus? Will the economy recover? How long until I lose my job? Will I be able to find a new one? Will racism and injustice ever end? Neither pastors nor congregation members are immune from paralyzing anxiety.
Dr. Archibald Hart is often quoted for saying, "Pastors don't get into trouble because they forget they are pastors. They get into trouble because they forget they are persons." As we continue to pastor through these difficult times that have significantly disrupted our rhythms, it is important that we stop to consider our own well-being.
Join us on Thursday June 18 from 11:30am-12:30pm PT for a Zoom gathering featuring Rev. Dr. Chris Adams, who is a Senior Researcher on the Flourishing in Ministry project out of Notre Dame. This project contextualizes positive psychology and well-being at work research to the job of being a pastor.
We invite you to take the personal and confidential well-being assessment before the webinar (instructions will be sent to registrants) and then join us as Dr. Adams explains the assessment and how to utilize it to integrate practices of well-being into our daily, weekly, and seasonal rhythms. We hope you can join us.
