On August 14-18, Lakeside will welcome Dr. Christine D. Pohl, Associate Provost and Professor of Christian Ethics and Church in Society at Asbury Theological Seminary.
She has completed extensive focus group research identifying the core practices essential for community life and authored the book Living into Community: Cultivating Practices that Sustain Us.
We will be using Dr. Pohl’s research to begin a dialogue about community and the core practices needed for a thriving one. You’re invited to participate in interviews and storytelling opportunities this spring and to take an electronic questionnaire now.
Some Lakesiders have already shared their thoughts about community by participating in our recent questionnaire. Here are a few thoughts about the meaning of community from Lakesiders.
What does community mean to you? Many individuals also reflected about illustrations of community in Lakeside and recently shared their examples in the questionnaire.
You’re invited to participate in the questionnaire about community, which will be used in Dr. Pohl’s lecture on Monday, Aug. 15 in Hoover Auditorium.
We’ll be using Dr. Pohl’s research this summer to begin a dialogue about community and the core practices needed for a thriving one. She will lead us in worship on Sunday, Aug. 14 in the Hoover Auditorium and will lecture during the Faith for Living Hour throughout the week.
