Nine Keys to Resilience, with Guest Speaker Phil Lund
Today, we're pleased to welcome back Phil Lund.
From Phil: Last year I read an essay called "Congregations as Centers for Community Resilience." It sounds like a great idea, but one that's easier said than done. What would it take for a congregation to truly be a center for resilience? I think we would need to begin with the congregation itself, focusing on how the relationships among individuals within the congregation engenders resilience for everyone, young and old. To give us some idea of how that might happen, we'll take a look at nine “keys to resilience” in three different areas: belief systems, organization and resources, and communication.
