“Moment to Moment” Youth and Family Ministry Training & Connections
Facilitated by Janell Renshaw – LUT and Unity Eastern Region Youth Consultant
Presented individually for $47 (inclusive of Prayer and Meditation and Training & Connections) or as part of the full conference.
How is it possible to stay in the moment in a world that grabs every single second of your attention? And in this world of busyness, is it possible that we have acquired so many badges of busyness that we have become insensitive to our needs and others?
How well does this serve your ministry, your congregation, your life and the youth you serve?
Life will not wait for you. It’s happening in every moment of your existence. The question is, will you be there?
If you are unsure if you fall into this category, ask yourself a few questions.
- Are there moments you miss, avoid or gloss over?
- Do you find yourself saying everything’s fine or agreeing to things you regret?
- I’ll do it when I (fill in the blank)
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then it’s time to bring “who you are” and “what’s happening” into alignment.
Our time together will be a reflective experience of the thoughts held in mind that steal our capacity to stay in the moments of love, joy, happiness, sadness, and grief.
We will dive into how the body and mind work together and a physical experience of meditation in motion to support bringing them into alignment, resulting in fully honoring every moment of your life.
