Dear Friends of CPE at Norton Healthcare,


Please share in your communities and with individuals our “Spring” Intern CPE unit beginning January.  This is a volunteer position for chaplain interns who will serve at our St. Matthews, Audubon and Brownsboro campuses.  Educational Days are on Tuesdays of each week after a one week orientation.  I am happy to talk to those interested through email or phone.


Thanks for your support of our program.

Dear Friends of MKP,

It has been said that one of the most important qualities of an effective leadership team is that they trust each other.  The trust needed is the type of trust that permits people (even encourages people) to speak openly and honestly with one anther without fear of reprisal.  With this type of trust, leaders can openly admit their weaknesses, confess their mistakes, propose ideas, and ask for help.  Such trust allows people to be vulnerable and authentic without feeling like such authenticity will be used against them.

Do the leaders of your congregation trust each other?  What do you do within your leadership team to build trust?  For that matter, do we in the Presbytery trust each other?  Do we believe the person who disagrees with us is seeking the common goals we all aspire to or that they have ulterior motives?  What might we do as a Presbytery to build trust? 

Peace in Christ!

Tom Vandergriff
