“Thinking Theologically with Our Hands,” a virtual webinar featuring MaryAnn McKibben Dana, will be presented by the Church of the Brethren’s Youth and Young Adult Ministries on June 13 from 5-6 p.m. (Eastern time).
Registration is free, and ministers may earn .01 continuing education units through the Brethren Academy for $10.
It is both an exciting and nerve-wracking time to be engaged in ministry, especially for those who work with youth or young adults. Ministry may look nothing like what was imagined, and that was even before a global pandemic!
In this webinar, McKibben Dana will guide participants in exploring faith formation through the lens of improvisation as holy work. Participants will learn practices for thriving in the midst of chaotic, unpredictable lives.
McKibben Dana is a writer, minister, speaker, and coach who lives in Virginia. When writing, she crafts books that she herself longs to read. She is a mother of three who loves to bake muffins, knit, and occasionally run a marathon. She considers herself to be a recovering perfectionist who likes her back-up plans to have back-up plans. With this in mind, she wrote God, Improv, and the Art of Living, which embraces improvisation as a spiritual and life practice.
