Contact: Jan Hinton, www.ePastorNetwork.com, 336-650-1443
WINSTON-SALEM, NC, Nov. 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Jan Hinton, founder of www.ePastorNetwork.com, the Internet's first membership website for the clergy, announced today she will conduct two teleseminars about the biggest challenges facing Americans during this Christmas season: finances and depression. Hinton is offering the calls free to all pastors.
"While this is the Christmas season, for many people this is a time great paradox: they are to be happy and joyous, yet are often consumed with financial worry and depression," said Hinton.
"Debt is a major issue and we are faced with a stewardship crisis. Combine that with depression encountered by many during this season, and the holidays are not enjoyable. I believe these interviews will provide Ministers with important and insightful information they can use to improve themselves and their work ministering to others," she said.
Dick Towner, Executive Director of the Good $ense Stewardship Movement will be Hinton's guest Tuesday, December 5, 2006. The interview, "Financial Stewardship: Eliminating the Black Hole of Debt" will focus upon:
- Materialism: a competing theology
- Why it's not being discussed from the pulpit
- Current crisis of financial stewardship
- Tools and strategies to honor God with our money and possessions
Joining Hinton for "Blue Christmas" will be Paul Mauk, a Licensed Professional Counselor from Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Senior Pastor Mike Thompson of Kenansville Baptist Church located in Kenansville, North Carolina.
During the call on December 8, 2006, they will discuss:
- Causes of "Blue Christmas"
- Signs and symptoms
- Coping strategies
- Pastoral care - effective strategies for the minister and for the congregation
Both calls are free but Pastors must register at www.ePastorNetwork.com in order to reserve a telephone line.
