Description

"The Ministry of Being-With"

A Retreat for Rural Ministers*

with Rev. Jeremy Troxler

March 1st-2nd - Mt. Shepherd Retreat Center, Asheboro, NC

$25 registration fee includes four meals and one night's lodging.

Sam Wells has written that "with" may be the most important word in the Christian faith. Our salvation is found in the one whom the angel names "Emmanuel," "God-with-us": and the ultimate end of all ministry is the kind of "being-with" shared among the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. In this retreat we will draw from Sam Wells' new book Incarnational Ministry to talk together about how we can more faithfully live out the ministry of being-with: how to genuinely be with God, how to be with our true selves, how to be with our often-divided congregations, and how to be with the diverse people of our communities in a way that leads to truth and life. The retreat will also offer us the gift of time to "be with" each other: so that our loneliness will be eased, and so we can be refreshed and encouraged for our shared ministry.

* The retreat is open to clergy and laity. Registration deadline February 20, 2018.
