A Church Reforming, a World Transforming: Faithful Ministry in a Chaotic World

NC Conference Building, Dixon Chapel 700 Waterfield Ridge Place, Garner

Join pastor and author MaryAnn McKibben Dana for a spirited exploration of “yes, and…” and other tools for faithful improvisation. We are all improvisers, often without realizing it. The focus of our time together will not be on acting and comedy skills, but on practices for thriving in the midst of chaotic, often unpredictable lives. Come for a tasty blend of scripture, theology, psychology, literature, pop culture, music, and more, as we dream, discuss, and play together.
