Is Collaboration a "holy shenanigans"?
Join Tara and Spencer Burke as they celebrate innovation and collaboration to foster wholeness for people and organizations.


In the summer of 2022, spiritual innovator Spencer Burke, organized an Online Conference with 30 Spiritual Leaders called, "The Next Sunday Summit".
Holy Shenanigans Podcast muse, Rev. Tara L. Eastman joined Spencer for a conversation about change, church, collaboration and innovation. 

Questions for further discussion:
1. What does the "Next Sunday" look like in my church/community of faith/spirituality?
2. How can innovation and collaboration help leaders navigate adaptive challenges?
3. Who might be a co-collaborator in waiting - to help foster wholeness in my community?

Gratitude to Spencer Burke for permissions to re-release this segment of "The Next Sunday Summit".  Thanks to Ian Eastman and Matt Kendziera for sound editing.
