We are they that we need to heal.
Clergy are trained to minister to others, often at the expense of the well-being of themselves and their families. In the wake of a pandemic and political turmoil, clergy are called upon to re-imagine personal and community financial well-being and to minister to the wounds created by fiscal trauma and economic inequity.
By starting with their financial wounds, clergy can create new conversations and co-create strategies with their congregations and communities. This community conversation is designed to introduce participants to the concept of fiscal trauma and provided an understanding of how it impacts the emotional well-being of individuals and communities.
Facilitated by activist and social worker Vanessa Jackson, participants will take away tools for exploring the impact of fiscal trauma in their own lives and prepare them to support their congregations in creating more spiritually-centered visions of prosperity.
