THE FOLLOWING SUPPORTERS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE CONFERENCE IN ORDER TO KEEP IT AFFORDABLE FOR ALL WHO WISH TO PARTICIPATE.
We welcome Ms. Bradford-Smith as one of the speakers of the conference. As a mediator, Ms. Bradford-Smith’s goal is to keep clients from getting stuck on points that do not take them forward. The client is the expert in solving those issues unique to their situation.
According to Ms. Bradford-Smith, listening is the cornerstone of mediation practice. It is the recognition of a perceived or real disparity of power and to facilitate a process that is respectful to all clients is essential.

Daphne Reiley is a member of Sandy Springs Christian Church, Sandy Springs, Georgia. She provides spiritual support to shut-ins and caregivers, including providing a monthly communion vespers service at Northlake Gardens Assisted Living Residence. Daphne’s heartfelt call is to continue to provide spiritual nurture to those living with dementia throughout the journey with the disease.
Daphne holds a Certificate in Spiritual Formation from Columbia Theological Seminary, awarded in September of 2010. While a member at First Christian Church of Decatur (Disciples of Christ) in Decatur, Georgia, Daphne envisioned and developed the congregation’s Caregiver Spiritual Support Ministry, being commissioned to that ministry through August of 2012.
Her move to Sandy Springs Christian Church saw Daphne offer a series of adult focus group Sunday school classes including, lectio divina and centering prayer, lectio divina and journaling, and an exploration of one’s spiritual history: learning to write a spiritual autobiography. She regularly presents workshops and seminars on issues important to caregivers and non-caregivers alike.
Daphne is currently enrolled in the Certificate in Spiritual Direction program with Columbia Theological Seminary. Upon completion, she hopes to expand her ministry with older adults by providing a space for the elderly to continue exploring their relationship with the Holy.
