Change in Real Time: Reflections on the scripture

Covid-19 tapped our resilience for unexpected change. Sudden change requires a surge of readiness. Responding rather than reacting can temper the negative impact of crisis. Even as anxiety is present, we can flip the switch of our thinking to respond to problems creatively. The two bible study series explores the concepts and ideas of relationship theory through an exploration of biblical illustrations, conversation and online resources. Each session is designed for those new to systems thinking and continuing learners alike. Videos may be watched in any order, or individually.
