Navigating Communal Trauma in Faith

October 05, 2020 Odyssey Impact Season 2 Episode 2
Odyssey Impact: The Conversations
Navigating Communal Trauma in Faith
Show Notes

Co-presented by Odyssey Impact, Macedonian Ministry
and Institute for Collective Trauma and Growth

For faith leaders, no disaster exactly parallels the COVID-19 pandemic. However, what about other crises and communal traumas weathered by congregations and those who lead them? Join us for a conversation with colleagues and experts who’ve led congregations through both human-caused and natural disasters, and what pastoral care and leadership wisdom those experiences provide us now.

We encourage ALL faith leaders, in any context, to join us!
