Pastoral Care in Times of Crisis and Challenge

Presented by Rev. David Pyle

At the core of the commitment to one another in our covenant is how we care for one another as religious communities. And yet, in times of crisis, conflict, or challenge, the patterns of how we have cared for one another in other times can break down. This webinar will explore both practices of how to care for one another in times of crisis and challenge, but also how the care itself must change because of these times. This is a webinar for Religious Professionals, Lay-Leaders, and Congregation Members who are involved in the congregation’s ministries of caring.
