Event

Casting the First Stone (Sep. 16, Sep. 29, OR Oct. 29)
The Lombard Mennonite Peace Center will present this 90-minute webinar on Wednesday, Sep. 16.  It will be repeated on Tuesday, Sep. 29 and Thursday, Oct. 29. Each session will run from 10:30am to 12:00 noon Central Time.  Registrants will participate on their preferred electronic device via Zoom video conferencing. A brief description of this webinar is as follows:

Scapegoating of pastors and other leaders is a common occurrence in churches.  The process is mindless, taking on a life of its own, as anxiety spreads from one church member to another.  The webinar will explore the scapegoating phenomenon from a family systems perspective, while also including theological reflections grounded in the work of René Girard.

   The webinar will begin by outlining a congregational case study to review how anxiety plays out in church systems.

   It will view the scapegoating challenge within the context of Bowen family systems theory's understanding of unhealthy togetherness forces and the herding instinct.

   René Girards understanding of mimetic contagion will be compared with the herding instinct as described by systems thinking.

   The nature of mimetic contagion will be illustrated by the story of Jesus and the woman taken in adultery, as portrayed by artistic representations of the theme from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Modern eras.

   Following the example of Jesus, the webinar concludes with reflections on how to stop the kind of mimetic contagion that can lead to scapegoating in the church, as well as violence in the broader society.
