Today Joanna Hubbard a deep and exciting conversation with with Coral Smith and Phil Hoffmann about Blackwood Uniting Church and their Community Classes. Our aim was to help Coral and Phil clarify how they might explore the opportunities with their people.
We put our best listening skills together with our experience of Community Development.
The experts in this community are Coral and Phil. They have a deep understanding of their people and history.
Why is it that we so rely on committee meetings to discuss matters expecially when we are seeking to deepen the conversations we have with groups about their self understanding of their own purpose?
