As I’m developing the upcoming spring offering of Congregational Care and Formation, I’d love to have some imaginative conversation with students on the course design. Whether you’ve already taken the course, will take it in the spring, or will take it sometime in the future, I’d love for you to participate in this “design lab” to think alongside me about the elements of the course (readings, topics, questions, assignments) in ways that will help shape it into what I hope will be a useful, impactful, and transformative course of the future of your ministry. Meet in the Bockman 116 community room, or you can join via Zoom on Monday, Oct. 30 from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Light refreshments provided.
