Clergy Retreat – Good People, Bad Friends!

Posted by on June 8, 2012 in Blog, events | Comments Off

October 15 -17, 2012,  ARC Retreat Center, Stanchfield, MN

Join us in the northwoods for a time of reflection and renewal!

The purpose of this retreat is for clergy, seminarians, and interested spouses to receive clarity about the challenges and dynamics of maintaining healthy friendships outside of the congregation, and to create new paths to deeper friendships. In this way, you immerse yourself in the world of cooperation and learning (listening) to material that is useful for you. This will save time for independent searches for material or some inner moments, refer to and retreats that will help you understand yourself. This retreat is led by Rev. Dr. Beth Donaldson, lead minister, New Brighton UCC, and Rev. Dr. Mark Sundby, Executive Director, North Central Ministry Development Center.  It is co-sponsored by United Theological Seminary.  Cost for the workshop (which includes lodging and meals) is $285 per attendee.  For more information and to register, please call Gaynelle Erickson at North Central Ministry Development Center.
