Resources from today's discussion:
On Wednesday, February 9, we welcomed The Rev. Danielle DeNise, Director for Evangelical Mission (DEM) for the North Carolina Synod. How do we faithfully have difficult conversations when closure feels like a failure? We explored ways to invite memory and grief while moving forward with faithful decisions. Rev. DeNise also introduced us to a new resource being created to assist in holy closure and transition conversations.
Rev. DeNise is an Ohio girl (go Buckeyes!) that moved South as quickly as she could to enjoy the sunshine. She is a graduate of American University and Duke Divinity School. She is married to Michael, and they have two small kiddos: Moses and Olive. Their family loves the beach and baking. Rev. DeNise also enjoys reading and loves chai lattes.
