Wow! Having a light dinner, mostly raw (yeah!) with hospitality coordinator Louise Stahnke and her husband Mark yielded good fellowship and more conversation about community. They are a gold mine of information having moved here sight unseen about 25 years ago. They recommend the book “Healing the Heart of Your Church: How Church Leaders Can Break the Cycle of Historic Corporate Dysfunction” by Dr. Kenneth Quick. Learn more here
I took this free church assessment and it was very eye-opening.
Louise and Mark agreed that this process helped their community and church enormously. Makes sense–healing past trauma will release our church to be all that God wants it to be. I can’t wait to study this. But I am leaving day after tomorrow–so much to do–so little time. I am so glad to have this book.
