Tending the Fire to Stoke Leadership Resilience in Vermont Congregations

‘Tending the Fire’ to Stoke Leadership Resilience in Vermont Congregations

Registration Deadline: January 17, 2017

By Barbara Lemmel

“Why does my church do that? And what can I do about it? Without letting it eat me alive?“

Leading a congregation through change—and all our congregations are experiencing change—isn’t ever easy. But it can be easier. Tending the Fire can help clergy and lay leaders understand the emotional dynamics that take over when people get anxious, how to get a “stuck” church to be “unstuck”—and how to remain sane and whole in the midst of it all. Tending the Fire workshops are scheduled to take place in Essex Center, Vermont, beginning in January 2017, and registration is open now through January 17. To register or obtain additional information, please download the leaflet, visit, or contact Barbara Lemmel by email at or by phone at (802) 881-3267.
