Rick Mixon and Daniel Pryfogle co-lead a three-part online conversation on “Congregational Death/Community Life.”

Sympara cofounder Daniel Pryfogle and pastor/counselor Rick Mixon take up these critical questions in a time when thousands of religious communities are going out of business while many more hang on. In a series of live online conversations, Daniel and Rick explore the difficult work of death that is essential for life through a rich composting of psychology, theology and personal history. Each session includes a Q&A.


The webinar is free and will take place on August 11, 18 and 25 from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm EDT.
