A –  “Mindful Self-Compassion for Caregiver Fatigue

B – “Exploring ’Hybrid’ Church- A Spiritual Practice in Community

Description: Join Rev. Jacki Belile for a session to discuss both practical and theological elements in choosing to be “church” in the current era. As we emerge from pandemic shutdown and “online” church, how will we do church differently moving forward? And what will that mean for our understanding of what it means to be the church? Rev. Jacki will share from personal experience at her small church in Chicago, as well as introduce themes, patterns and questions from the wider Body of Christ. Her touchstone verse in this epic era is 2 Timothy 1:7.
