Coaching for All Seasons - Dec 7, 2021
 Coaching for All Seasons:
'The Calm Before the Storm - A Place for Advent Refuge'
With The Rev. Darryl Kozak

Monthly Online Gathering for
Pacifica Synod Rostered & Lay Leaders
Tuesday, December 7, 2021
at 11 am to noon (PST)/9-10 am (HST)



 December is a hectic time of the year with shopping, decorating, and getting things ready for another holiday season. And in the church, it's a busy time as we prepare and plan for celebrating the great festival of Christmas. 

It can seem overwhelming.


As a way to set some time aside for prayer, meditation, and silence, our December Pacifica Coaching theme is “The Calm before the Storm” - a time for rest, renewal, and reset. During our gathering, Darryl W. Kozak, one of our Pacifica coaches and pastor of Peace Lutheran Church in Corona, will lead this session with a guided meditation to center ourselves followed by a time of prayer and silence. You'll be invited to join three breakout groups each focusing on a different topic. 


We hope this will provide a safe space for you to simply rest in God's Spirit.



Brought to you by your Pacifica Synod Coaching Team to support Synod leaders during challenging times. Each monthly offering brings a presentation on a current topic and an opportunity to discuss it in a small group facilitated by an ELCA coach.
Pacifica Synod has invested in training coaches to work with rostered and lay leaders one-on-one or in groups. A coach's role is to support leaders in naming challenging issues and identifying constructive responses to them.
