The workshop runs from 9am-12:30pm starting with a general session, then offering targeted breakout sessions and concluding with a second general session. The workshop is free (including a continental breakfast available at 8:30am) but registration is required. Please note that childcare will not be provided.

  • Counsel for Common Questions

    The coronavirus pandemic has presented many of us with new (or heightened) emotional and spiritual challenges. Our routines have been interrupted. Our plans have evaporated. Everything we thought we were going to do, has been canceled or postponed. Additionally, we've experienced isolation from one another: our community, our friendships, the support we've come to rely on through family, church, activities, and work, is now experienced virtually. For some of us, this time has also meant dealing with significant loneliness, depression, anger, or grief.
