Advanced Boundary Training – “Good Leave-taking Boundaries”
May 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Accepting another call can be exciting…until the reality about departing your current ministry sets in (a fear that sometimes keeps us from leaving when we should). Before saying hello to one congregation, there must be a time of saying goodbye to the other. Leaving well is so very important for the spiritual wellbeing of the clergy person and the congregation. There are spiritual practices, rituals of closure, and a series of goodbyes along the way. How to leave with grace and in a healthy way is not always easy but is a part of our covenantal responsibility.
Leaving a congregation without a call can be challenging for a variety of reasons. This kind of leaving can create a very different dynamic. Even so, the same process is necessary for the spiritual health of the pastor and congregation. During this training we will consider the emotional aspects of these transitions, the details that are a part of the timeline for parting and how all of this can be done faithfully in our covenantal relationships with one another.
Facilitator: Rev. Dr. Susan Minasian
