  2. 12 - Good Idea Webinars - Leadership Now for a Better _Normal_ with Rev Dr Lanette Plambeck

    Leadership Now for A Better “Normal” – Plato in The Republic wrote “A need or problem encourages creative efforts to meet the need or solve the problem.” Today we might say “necessity is the mother of invention.” Our churches have done amazing things since the start of the Covid-19 situation in ways none of us dreamed possible until we had no choice. How many times have you thought or said “when things get back to normal…” Perhaps now is the time to ask some critical leadership questions: What should never get back to normal? What have we learned that we need to continue moving forward? How will we be different, in a good way, moving forward and what do we do now to make sure those changes take root? Our guest is Rev. Dr. Lanette Plambeck, Director of Clergy and Leadership Excellence for the Iowa Annual Conference. Lanette has a passion for helping people to recognize their leadership style and skill set and develop in areas that will make them the very best version of themselves as a leader. Rev. Dr. Jaye Johnson, Director of Congregational Excellence for the Iowa Annual Conference, is the host.

  3. Online Sermon from Bishop Deborah Kiesey with an introduction from Bishop Laurie Haller

    For the past several weeks, our clergy and laity have been working tirelessly to provide vital worship, pastoral care, and hope for our local churches in the Iowa Annual Conference. Many of our clergy, church staff, and worship teams are utterly exhausted in mind, body, and spirit. Therefore, Bishop Laurie is requiring those teams to find three days back-to-back between now and Pentecost Sunday, May 31, to experience rest, renewal, and sabbath. That means no work on those three days. To make it through the long haul, caring for your spirit is essential. We need you.

    The cabinet has prepared a complete worship service so clergy, church staff, and worship leaders will have no responsibilities in that worship service, other than to be blessed.
