ADULT EDUCATION FORUM

WEDNESDAYS IN AUGUST, 7:45PM | LUTHER HALL & ZOOM

The Wednesday Night Education Forum will feature some extraordinary speakers via Ted Talks during the final three Wednesdays in August (17th, 24th, & 31st). An open-ended discussion will follow the Ted Talk.

 

Each session will begin at 7:45 PM and will be preceded by the Office of Evening Prayer at 7:00 PM. Each session will be offered in a hybrid format (Luther Hall and Zoom).

 

This Wednesday's presentation will be "The Power of Vulnerability" by Brené Brown. In this 2010 TED Talk, Brené Brown studies human connection--our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity.

FALL EDUCATION SERIES:

HOW TO LEAD WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING

TUESDAYS (SEPTEMBER 6 - OCTOBER 18)

IN AUGUST, 7:45PM | LUTHER HALL & ZOOM

When a church shifts from an ending to a new beginning, it can be a daunting challenge but also a huge opportunity. What happens when the old way of doing things no longer works but a way forward is not yet clear?

 

Church growth, building family-centered ministries, raising up new leaders, financial sustainability, welcoming a new rector... These issues, and many more, are front-and-center in the life of all Episcopal congregations, especially those in a transition process.

 

The St. Bede's Fall Education Series will be a 7-part series based on the book by Susan Beaumont, "How To Lead When You Don’t Know Where You’re Going" Leading in a Liminal Season." Whether you are currently a "leader" at St. Bede's or not, this education series is designed for everyone who wants to see St. Bede's thrive in the years to come.
