The Launch of the Interfaith at Work: Religious Leaders Cohort
January 24, 2023
Being a leader in a religious community right now can be hard.
How people form spiritual life, how we structure and support regular community, how we live our values and have work/life balance and and and – these questions are all going through serious flux, and all religious and spiritual communities and the people who keep them alive are grappling with what that means for them.
The good news amidst change and ambiguity is that we have each other, for support and shared wisdom. To further our connections to one another, we are pleased to announce the Interfaith at Work Religious Leaders cohort. We will meet monthly via Zoom, with every other month a more casual social and chat gathering, and the months in between professional training with experts in their field. “Religious Leader” means just that, a person who is a leader in their religious, spiritual, or ethical community, so no need for ordination or making your rent from your work in religious leadership. We want anyone and everyone who considers themselves a part of the category to get involved.
On January 30 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. CT AND February 8 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. CT – we’re getting to know each other and supporting each other on the big stuff! At both of these events, during different times of day to cover our wide variety of schedules and time zones, come to meet other folks in the field, share stories and support, and then spend some time in peer learning groups on the subjects of Building Community Now, Spiritual Rooting, and Advanced Interfaith Dialogue (talking gender, Israel/Palestine, and whatever feels hardest in the deep work you’re already doing). You can register to receive the Zoom links or contact Hannah with any questions.
Hannah Kardon leads the Religious Leaders Cohort. Hannah is a pastor, parent, writer, and mystic in Chicago. She has previously served at Urban Village Church and Interfaith America, coordinated the first federally funded interfaith service grant Inspired to Serve and is co-author of “Finding Peace in an Anxious World”.
