Seeking Shalom: Presence and Transformation

Annual Gathering 2021 – VIRTUAL!

September 17-19, 2021

Online on Zoom

Fostering Provider Resilience

 Theme Statement:

After an unimaginable year in healthcare, Annual Gathering 2021 will be a restorative, connecting space for Anabaptist healthcare providers to explore how our faith contributes to our resilience and the distinctiveness of being an Anabaptist healthcare provider. In a partnership with Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute, MHF is pleased to offer a 2-hour Introduction to Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience specifically for MHF healthcare providers (thanks to a generous Innovation Grant from MHS). Our Friday plenary session will explore how we might apply the 5 Life Standards of More with Less to a healthcare environment, and there will be plenty of sessions for prayer, connecting, and networking.
