Clergy and their wives invited to participate in special August 7 webinar
CHICAGO, IL [MW Diocese Communications] — A special invitation has been extended to all clergy and their wives of the Diocese of the Midwest to participate in a special webinar titled “Passion-Bearing Doesn’t Have to Ruin Your Health and Marriage” at 1:30 p.m. [EST] on Friday, August 7, 2015.
The webinar -- available at no cost to participants -- is being made available by the Center for Family Care of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Clergy and their wives may register to participate on-line, here.
Facilitating the webinar will be Deacon Dr. Stephen Muse, who will address the spiritual roots, signs and symptoms of compassion, fatigue and burnout and suggest safeguards to prevent the conditions that are common to those in ministry and their families.
“The expertise of Deacon Stephen will be known to many, both from his previous presentations to the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America and his recently published books, When Hearts Become Flame and Being Bread, published by Saint Tikhon’s Monastery Press,” said Priest Nathan Preston, Administrator of the Orthodox Church in America’s Department of Pastoral Life.
Deacon Stephen also conducts the week-long “Clergy-in-Kairos” wellness program for clergy and clergy couples at the Pastoral Institute in Columbus, GA.
