CMD Workshop on the Habit of Attentiveness

Monday 20 June
10:00 – 12 noon and 13:00 – 15:00 - online

CMD 230622In October 2020, Baptists Together launched a CMD Handbook setting out expectations of recognised Baptist ministers for their continuing ministerial development (CMD).  The approach centres on five habits of CMD which ministers are asked to adapt to their own needs and contexts.  This workshop supports the Habit of Attentiveness. This workshop is also closely connected with Geoff Colmer’s Presidency and his theme of Attentive to Rhythms of Grace.
Learning objectives
  • To identify ways in which we attend to God, self and others
  • To reflect upon the grace in our lives and notice rhythms
  • To spend time listening to scripture
  • To practice some practices of attention
  • To find the place for silence
  • To think about how we attend to the mind of Christ with others 
In preparation for the online workshop you will be sent some reflective questions that will help to start your thinking. You will also be encouraged to familiarise yourself with the CMD handbook and section on attentiveness.
The Workshop
Two two-hour online sessions in which you will:
  • Discuss with colleagues the opportunities and challenges of Attentiveness
  • Practice attentiveness habits
  • Develop your own action plan 
Costs and Booking
The workshop will cost £35.00.
