Webinar | The Relational Meeting: Christian Leaders in Search of Strength and Anger

The Relational Meeting: Christian Leaders in Search of Strength and Anger

April 25, 2017 | 12:00 p.m. (CST) | Scripture Passage: John 4: 1-26

Webinar Leaders:

  • Dr. Angela Cowser, director of the Center for the Church and the Black Experience and assistant professor of sociology at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
  • Rev. Yehiel Curry, mission developer/pastor of Shekinah Chapel Lutheran Church

Webinar Description:

Jesus spent his time relationally - with God, with the disciples, with women, with sinners, with followers. From that relational work, he shaped and taught his disciples how to do ministry, prepared them for violence and death and resurrection, taught them a new faith, ate with them, walked the streets with them, challenged them, went to work with them, etc. In other words, he entered an anxious system, and both calmed it down and stirred it up. This was his primary mode and method for "doing ministry".

In this webinar, we will discuss the theology of the relational meeting through Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan Woman at the Well. We will spend time exegeting that pericope through the lens of the relational meeting, provide practical application, and 1-2 concrete actions that the webinar participants can do.


The webinar is free but we do ask that participants register ahead of time. By registering you will be emailed a link and information on how to access the webinar on April 25th.
