Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 3: Power And Authority

In "Harvest the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program

Reflect on the definitions of power and authority in Handout 1. Think of a time you have you experienced power—your own, or another's—as the "ability to achieve purpose" in your congregation. How might you mobilize your own power to successfully lead this workshop? What authority, both formal and informal, are you granted by workshop participants? By the congregation? By the minister or other professional staff? What is implicitly and explicitly expected of you in exchange for the authority to lead the workshop?
