Vocation in a Time of Change

What does it mean to be a Deacon, an Elder, a Licensed Local Pastor, a Certified Lay Minister, or Lay Person Assigned? How do these offices within the church strengthen the church as a whole? How do they provide people a variety of ways to offer themselves vocationally for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ? How are these identities and not only, or even primarily, job descriptions? How has each of our responses to God’s claim on our lives led us to the identity, the work, and the Way that gives us deep meaning and purpose?

These are hard questions in the best of times. During times of national, international, and denominational strife and division, it becomes more imperative to know how to address them. This way of life is wonderful, difficult, heartbreaking, joyous, isolating, painful, and filled with love. There is no other job like serving God vocationally. You are invited to the Gathering of the Orders where this year we will offer gathering times to explore spiritual sustenance for this life. We will dialogue about the realities of living this way amid change - personal, professional, denominational, and sociopolitical.

You are invited as a spiritual leader in this denomination to gather with your colleagues and fellow members of your orders and fellowships to be replenished. We hope to see you October 23-25.

Rev. Larry Peacock, an Ordained Elder in the Cal-Pac Conference, a retreat leader, Spiritual Director and Director of the Franciscan Spiritual Center, Milwaukee, Oregon, will serve as our keynote speaker.
