Being Awake: Living Abundantly

“Only that day dawns to which we are awake.” Henry David Thoreau

The dream of every congregation, to be strong, vital and healthy, lies not outside itself, but within each loving community. We gain our power not by dwelling on scarcity, but by awakening to the abundance that is present in all congregations. Based on the book, The Abundant Community, by John McKnight and Peter Block, this webinar will focus on the giving of gifts, the presence of association, and the compassion of hospitality, as means to truly creating a beloved community.

Mark Bernstein is Congregational Life Staff in the Central East Regional Group. He lives in Philadelphia and believes that every congregation has the ability to transform itself in ways that may seem unimaginable.
