When We Can’t Physically Gather: Minimizing Zoom and Maximizing Connection
Episcopalians around Province I are invited to gather online to discuss formation strategies in this new era of global pandemic. Linnae Peterson, from the Diocese of New Hampshire, will lead weekly Zoom conversations in September. The goals of these informal discussions are to better connect formation folks across the Province, to inspire each other with ideas and to share our resources!
Discussion times and topics are as follows:
September 1st, 7:00 PM When We Can’t Physically Gather: Minimizing Zoom and Maximizing Connection
While Zoom has been a tremendous gift in staying connected during this time of disruption, there is a feeling of being “Zoomed out." Are there ways to connect without Zoom? Ways to worship together and connect for Formation without a screen? Join with others as we brainstorm ways to enrich our "screenless" connection.
September 8th, 7:00 PM They “Liked’ Our Facebook Worship- Now What?
Our parishes have expanded. As we have gone online in various forms, we have been discovered by new people, not only those in our neighborhood but around the country and sometimes the world. How do we connect with and integrate our new neighbors? How will we expand our thinking as we create opportunities to worship, learn, and connect with each other whatever our geographic location? Find out what others are doing to expand our communities of faith.
September 15th, 7:00 PM What do I need? What do I have to share? How can we support each other in this time of change?
Paul tells us that we are all part of the Body of Christ, and that it is as a whole that we are able to do the ministry of the Church. As our world has changed, we have a chance to rethink how we can do the ministry that God has called us to do. Each of us has something to give; each of us has something we need. Join us as we consider how we can work together to provide for our parishes and each other.
September 22nd, 7:00 PM Creating and Equipping a Community of Teachers for Online Formation
We have never done this before! For our Sunday School teachers, Formation leaders (and really for each of us!), this is a new world in which we seek to teach and learn. More than ever we need one another for support, expertise and wisdom. How do we find ways to come together and equip each other for a new way of teaching and learning? Join us to brainstorm ways to connect, on and off line.
