An Introduction to Trauma-Informed Ministry (Practically Prophetic Webinar)
Thursday, May 12, 2022
Over the last two years, the topic of trauma has made its way into the public conversation in new ways. Once thought to be a concern only for military veterans and first responders, the impact of trauma on ‘ordinary’ people is being recognized as we move through a global disaster together. In this session we will explore what constitutes trauma and how it impacts our lives in community.
Michele Rowe previously worked as a Corrections Worker, in community development in the core of Saskatoon, and as an educator and curriculum developer in Indigenous and non-Indigenous colleges before Jesus ruined her life in the best possible way and she answered the call to ordered ministry. A lifelong learner, Michele has completed training related to mental health and addictions recovery and support, grief and loss recovery, and trauma support. She is grateful to live in God’s country and minister alongside the grace-filled people of Maple Creek United Church and the surrounding community.
“Practically Prophetic” is a webinar series focused on tools & tips for our UCC ministry together. Think of it as Com-Ed (Community Education) for all: speakers, presentations, and panel discussions related to just about anything & everything in the vibrant faith-life of the church. Practically Prophetic is a cool collaboration of Living Skies Region Faith Formation (UCC), St. Andrew’s College, and the Centre for Christian Studies.
