The Peninsula-Delaware Conference will offer its members an Emotional Intelligence and Diversity video-conferencing workshop on two Saturdays next month: Jan. 16 and 23, 12:30 to 3:30 PM. And Eastern PA Conference members are invited to attend.
The Revs. David Piltz and Anita Powell, members of the Eastern PA Conference Commission on Religion & Race who developed the workshop, will lead it on Zoom for Pen-Del. The Rev. Alice Johnson Ervin chairs Pen-Del’s sponsoring Cross-Racial/Cross-Cultural Committee.
Emotional intelligence is innate to everyone, and it is important for every church. In fact, it’s a must-learn for church leaders who want to lead more like Christ and abide in Christ. This training provides insights into biblical precepts and Jesus’ approach to managing conflict and creating believers. It helps us understand bias, ambiguity and empathy, and to withstand the sins of prejudice and injustice, as well as fear, anger and violence.
