The NALC is committed to the renewal of all our congregations, working to develop and deliver resources that challenge and open the NALC to the work of the Holy Spirit in our ministry and mission. During Lutheran Week in Denver, the Mission Festival is designed to inspire and serve as a resource to congregations. This includes specific “break out” sessions on a variety of topics. Gwynne Gonnerman is excited to present the topic: “Spend Time With People The Way Jesus Did.”
American culture is characterized by the word “busy.” There is never enough time, burn out seems inevitable, and the challenge of developing deep relationships is real. What good things do we say “no” to so we can say “yes” to better things? In Life-To-Life Discipleship, this is a key element. The real question is: “what are you going to do about it?” Jesus faced this challenge in even greater ways than we do. Relationships are key not just to ministry, but in life. This breakout session will not just have presentation time, but also provide discussion and practical resources.
Gwynne Gonnerman delights in time spent with the precious people in her life. Gwynne became an advocate for herself and others and seeks safe, affirming community to release “ex”periences of abandonment and “re”lease a new life of abandon. She is honored to partner with others to share Jesus’ love, hope, and encouragement to needy children, women, families, and communities as a national presenter on a variety of topics, including grandparenting as a means of discipleship.
