With COVID-19 changing the norms of gathering and connection, Arise invites Michelle Pokorny, Associate Director of Spiritual Formation, to join Arise in a Zoom gathering about community & spiritual formation. She will speak about how to engage with this well right now, how to lead others in this, and overcoming challenges given the current reality. Michelle wrote a blog on this earlier this summer - it focuses more on the fact that mediated community isn't a substitute for the real thing. For this session, she'll share more on how we move forward with this from a biblical perspective. It is designed to be practical and interactive."
