Going Deeper: Facilitating Dialogue Across Difference

In the Bishop's Cooperative Parish meetings and at some District gatherings across the Conference, we have offered resources to clergy and church leaders on leading dialogues on difficult topics, particularly regarding questions of what the future will look like in our churches. To give clergy and church leaders a focused time to ask deeper questions so they will be better prepared to lead dialogues across difference, the Rev. Matt Curry (Director of Connectional Ministries) and Rev. Doris K. Dalton (Director of Leadership Development and Intercultural Competency) will offer two informational sessions via ZOOM video/audio conference calls. 

 

Details: 

Who can join these video conference calls? Clergy and church lay leaders in the New York Conference

What will we discuss on these calls? Doris and Matt will lead the information session and provide more resources on how to facilitate healthy dialogues, answer your questions, and help clergy and church leaders think through the process of leading their churches in a dialogue.

When will these calls take place? You can sign up for one or both of these information sessions:

  • Wednesday, December 11 from 12pm to 1:30pm
  • Monday, February 3 from 1pm to 2:30pm

Where will these calls be held? If you have a computer and connection to the internet, you can participate! If you have a phone, you can participate! All of these information sessions will be held over ZOOM, which is a video/audio conference call. You are not expected to come to a location to be part of this call. 

How do we participate? Please sign up in the form below. We will email you an invitation for a ZOOM call before the date of the call. 

I really want to join these informational sessions. What do I do if none of these dates/times work for me? We will record these sessions and make them available to you upon request.
