* Congregations who may be Reconciling in Christ but are looking to renew, refresh or deepen their welcome and conversation about welcomeParticipants will be equipped with a tool-kit for assessing the congregational timeline and readiness, and trained in graceful engagement techniques that would be helpful for any congregational conversations that involved deep listening and reconciling.
