Simon Dent asked Joanna and I to explore with him how he might improve his congregation for those people who suffer from a mental health concerns. So here we are (a few days out from Christmas) telling stories around making a community a great place.
Wisdom capture 2 includes theological concepts, discussion of stigma and prejudice and that the matter is really about the community and less about the illness. Includes a list of characteristics for congegations.
Wisdom capture 3 covers off on ‘What next?’ for the group.
Participants includes Julie (Baptist Church Christies Beach) , George and Terry (Uniting Communities), Wendy and Dianne (UC A Pastoral Relations), Cogs Smith (Blackwood UCA), Simon (Coro) and Joanna (Baptistcare) and Peter (UC).
We had interest from a number of other parties and will endavour to host similar conversations in the West and North when we return from leave!
