WYM Training & Recording Workshop at Quaker Knoll – June 15
"With Heart, Mind and Soul. . . Ministry Among Friends in the 21st Century"
Leaders: Patricia Thomas and Jim Newby.
This workshop will cover a Meeting's expectations of its minister beyond preaching. How does the minister maintain his/her passion for ministry? How does the minister help facilitate the formation of community? What are the ten marks of an effective spiritual care-giver? What are the marks of a thriving Meeting? What do I do when I am expected to officiate at a memorial service? A wedding?
