Join the many others in the New England Conference who have participated in "Tending the Fire" led by the Rev. Barb Lemmel. "Tending the Fire" draws on the wisdom of family systems theory as developed by Murray Bowen and Edwin Friedman, combined with the adaptive leadership insights of Ron Heifetz and the powerful research of Brené Brown. Rather than a formula for leadership, "Tending the Fire" helps the participating clergy to understand family systems and how they work within our churches.
