Parents and families in the 21st Century are pulled in directions previous generations could never have imagined, and they need support and community. A core belief in the Living Compass parenting program is that not only does it take a “village to raise a child,” but it takes a village to support a parent. This group is designed to be a village of support for parents, providing both community and the guidance of faith as a primary compass in family life.
Way of Discipleship
Leader: Ellen Jockusch
In this seven-session workshop we will reflect on seven words–turn, learn, pray, worship, bless, go, and rest–which Michael Curry, our Presiding Bishop, believes are at the heart of what it means to love and follow Jesus. Notice that they are all verbs, that is, activities rather than beliefs, which means that we can actually practice them–try them on, so to speak, in different ways in our daily lives. Exploring how these seven words can inform and strengthen our identity as followers of Christ Jesus in the whole of our lives, not just on Sundays, is the focus of this workshop.
