December 3-6, 2014 Art of Hosting Training, Province III, with Tom Brackett and Steve Matthews
Tom describes it: In this highly interactive training, we will design and then host conversations that allow us to notice the wisdom that is emerging between us. We will companion participants in the processes of discerning new forms of ministry through the complexity of the various cultures we are called to serve. We will take the time needed to form genuine Communities of Practice that engender trust and nurture shared commitments to wise actions, locally. We will “Harvest the Learnings” from recent new ministries in the Province. We will explore the use of the following practices for the sake of forming new faith communities and missional initiatives: Open Space Technology, World Café, Circle Process, U-Process, Appreciative Inquiry, Pro-action Café and Harvesting as spiritual practice. Here is what we know will emerge within participants, based on our experiences across four denominations: Transformative learnings from leaders with recent experiences with new ministry development Engaging processes Courage and the inspiration to follow the Spirit Powerful questions Communities of practice that learn together Imminently practical processes for hosting community in your context.

Finding our Voice: Singing together for Liberation and Healing - This is the first of a series of four Tuesday classes in Dallas! Come when you can. Whether your work brings you to hospitals, recovery ministries, hospice, jail, church, school, or only to your meditation cushion, singing with and for one another can help us to manage our internal weather, deepen our ability to listen, and help us to be deeply present in our communities. In this four-week class, we will: • learn beautiful melodies to help us grow in compassion as we develop our most authentic voice and walk the way of freedom together. • listen deeply to the spirit within, sing our way to our sweetest identity, individually and collectively, • re-discover God with and in our voices; • listen deeply and experience the ways sound touches spirit; • explore sacred chant to heal ourselves and the world, learning how sound can enhance well-being; and • reflect on sounds that open (and close) our hearts. Absolutely everyone is welcome in this class of humming, toning, singing, deep listening, and seriously fun prayer. If you can hum, you can come. Whether you have a degree in music or have been told to mouth the words, you are beloved, and the possibilities for singing a deeper song together are truly endless if we learn to intentionally invite and include one another. Plan to start with yourself! Learn how your voice lives in your body, how to use it to generate health and healing, and how to let it help you bring your best self to all you do. Our greatest dreams and our biggest hurts are present in our voices. The voice you've been given is a part of your gift to the world and is unique in the universe. Knowing yourself can put you on the fast track to a healthy inner life.

Music That Makes Community. Designed specifically for those who want to learn how to lead music effectively without the use of hymnals or other printed materials. Enhance existing music programs, aid the development of new ones and build relationships within participants’ churches and communities. Our time together will be both practical and theoretical. Participants will learn the skills involved in selecting and leading “paperless” music, with ample opportunity to practice. We will also spend time discussing the role of this type of music in the church and its potential to effect congregational transformation. This practice intensive will draw together leaders to explore paperless music in an environment of mutual learning. Lunch (included in the registration fee) will be provided for each full day.
