Topic:

First 90 minutes:  The Judger Gene: Why Meditation is the Only Antidote to Our Real Infection – One of the common things we find among the world class performers scattered through many different disciplines and domains is the presence of a meditation practice. For many Christians the idea of meditation is a foreign if not threatening concept. Not only should it be a cornerstone practice for us, it is one of the only practices that seems capable of addressing and correcting what appears to be the core challenge of spiritual formation….depicted in the opening narrative of Genesis. We created this module due to the number of requests we have had for it!

 

Second 90 minutes:  From the Stability of Yesterday to the Liquidity of Today: There is No Going Back to the “Good Old Days” – Many churches in North America remain deeply stuck as they wrestle to get back to “the way we used to do things when we were growing and vibrant.” These backward glancing legacy members, well intentioned and wanting to see their churches restored to their glory days, are totally unaware that the good ole days of the 50’s, 60’s and even early 70’s when church membership growth outstripped population growth are anomalies not norms. This module is an effort to equip you with a clear narrative of not only what has happened over the last 50-60 years, what is necessary moving in the future of social media, mass customization, warp speed lifestyles, and the cult of busy. How do we reach people, and engage them in compelling relationships and ministry?
