The World Cafe - The World Café is a powerful social technology for engaging people in conversations that matter. Based on the understanding that conversation is the core process that drives personal, business, and organizational life (including the church!), the World Café is more than a method, a process, or technique - it's a way of thinking and being together sourced in a philosophy of conversational leadership.
Redeeming The Past - We all have regrets in life, in fact, the two great thieves of the present are guilt about the past and fear about the future. Guilt and fear together can paralyze us and prevent us from becoming who God has called us to be and can rob us of the power to do what God has called us to do. Dick Hamm has "been there and back" and will help us think through these dynamics and how we can move forward in life and ministry with joy and energy. Dick HAMM
