Family members often don’t consider themselves to be “caregivers” when they have responsibilities for aging loved ones, and thus don’t seek help. Yet – receiving guidance and support can help them better care for their loved ones AND themselves. Are you a caregiver, or do you know someone who is?
God loves beyond borders.
In the United Church of Christ we are called to an extravagant welcome of all God's children, no matter who they are or where they are on life's journey. At a time when the politics of fear and hate are overwhelming airwaves, people of faith are called to respond with love. Together we are working to build bridges, not walls.
We are hosting a conversation to listen to your thoughts and ideas regarding the future of the Lay Academy, moving forward. You are invited to join us at the Southwest Conference Office on Wednesday, October 19th at 10:00am (AZ time).
Clergy Retreat 2016
And God said, "Hagar, slave of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?" Genesis 16:8a. Just like our sister Hagar, we are all traversing in the wilderness. Some of us are starting our journey, some are in the midst of the journey, and some are feeling comfortable and nearing the end of journey. As clergy, we have seen the body of Christ transition in many
different ways with grace and with some tabulation. How are you coping with this natural human experience? How are we adapting to the challenges facing you as Specialized Ministers and local clergy. We invite you to come and share, learn, communion with your fellow sisters and brother of the cloth. We also encourage you take a respite during this retreat. Come now and be led by the Spirit into the wilderness a quiet place and get some rest.
