Drs. Tracy Hartman and Steve Booth join Art Wright to discuss the challenge of leading churches right now. Tracy and Steve share insights gleaned from Family Systems Theory to encourage and support pastors and key leaders in congregations. The pandemic has ramped up anxiety in congregations and caused a great deal of personal and communal fear, especially due to the rapid changes that have taken place in society and in how churches function now. Leaders who are able to manage their own anxiety and reactions well in this stressful period will be better situated to steer their congregations through these difficult times and the eventual challenge of returning to a “new normal.”
