Ann Garrido will present “The Spirituality of Administration.”
Although we probably didn’t anticipate it when we moved into diocesan and parish ministry, administration fills much of our days – emails and phone calls, scheduling and budgeting, planning and problem solving. Administration is frequently critiqued both by those within the profession and without as work that takes good, fun-loving people and turns them into anxious curmudgeons, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Speaking out of her own experience as administrator, Ann Garrido will look at practices of administration that can be potentially transformative, making us not only effective administrators but holier, healthier Christians. Participants will be invited to reassess their own daily administrative tasks and conflicts with an eye toward how they might serve not only the greater Reign of God, but their own personal spiritual journey.
