Courageous Conversations: Speaking the Truth in Love

Dates: May 3 & 4, 2017
Time: 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Cost: $275
Facilitators: Jan Schmidt

Description: We have high expectations of each other in our church communities.  We have been transformed by our beliefs and yet are still on the journey of becoming whole.  This workshop will focus on how to have the difficult/challenging conversations within our church communities.  How do we hold people accountable to their commitments, even if they are volunteers?  How do we challenge gossip and behavior that undermines relationships?  How do we tell someone that the way in which they have said something has caused offense?  This workshop will explore how to be honest and yet completely caring at the same time.
