Vulnerability and Courage: The Practice of StewardshipThis is an introductory workshop that explores the practice of stewardship through the lens of researcher Brené Brown. Dr. Brown, a practicing Christian and professor of Social Work, has published her research on shame, vulnerability, and the practice of courage that leads to “wholeheartedness”. Her data concludes that persons who experience “wholeheartedness” strengthen the communities to which they belong, including congregations. ( Used only with permission of the authors.)
