The Taste of Companionship Presentation is an introductory look into the relational model of engagement called Companionship by the organization Pathways to Promise. Companionship is a practice of presence, a relationship responding to isolation or distress and supportive of healing and recovery by building a circle of care with individuals who are facing emotional and mental health challenges.
The Taste of Companionship Presentation includes a basic overview of the 4-hour Companionship Workshop which is available to congregations and ministry organizations, introducing participants to the 5 Practices of Companionship: Hospitality, Neighboring, Journeying Side-by-Side, Listening, and Accompaniment.
This introductory look into Companionship will allow participants to learn what the Companionship model is all about and help them identify ways the model could be incorporated into the fabric of their congregation or organization.
