Pre-Forum Seminar

Living with Trauma Memories

We will first consider the impact and damage of trauma in a human life and give an overview of various kinds of trauma in our world. Second, we will look at the necessary components of the healing process. Recovery always involves a reversal of the dynamics of trauma. The three components we will consider are talking, tears, and time. Finally, we will focus on how working with the trauma in human lives is actually a front row seat to the redemptive work of our God both in us and in those with whom we walk alongside.



Redeeming Power: Understanding Authority and Abuse in the Church

Diane Langberg interviewed by Lori Pritchard

Leadership is very important from a Biblical perspective. Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” However, leadership can be abused. The body of Christ desperately needs to understand the form power takes, how it can be abused, and how to respond to abuses of power. This workshop will be an interview with Diane Langberg about her recent book.


Ten Thoughts for Caregivers

How do we work with suffering, sin, evil, and darkness – dealing with all of these personally as well as in those who ask us for help – and not become utterly contaminated, looking for care in all the wrong places? We will consider ten characteristics of caregiving, how they can do damage to us, and what the antidotes of our Lord look like.
