STEWARDSHIP IN COMMUNITY – THE BENEDICTINE WAY is our next stewardship conference AND IT IS SOLD OUT. We will establish a waiting list if it reaches the sell out stage. Please call Glen Mitchell at (604) 684-6306, local 218 to go on a waiting list.
Bishop Melissa Skelton and The Rev. Dr. Marilyn Hames will lead us in creating pathways of discipleship framed in the Benedictine way. We will gather on Saturday October 18, 2014 at St. Dunstan Aldergrove. “This stewardship conference is about creating pathways to discipleship through our baptismal promises and the Marks of Mission. It is framed in the Benedictine way which all of us experience as an ongoing conversion of life as we listen for God’s direction and find stability and support in our faith community.”
Marilyn Hames says “Participants will not only learn about the Benedictine way of stewardship, they will have the opportunity to create their personal ‘Pathway to Discipleship’ – what some call a rule of life. The person following this pathway will face many challenges and changes and that is to be expected.
We’ll start by looking at ourselves and creating a place to begin the journey. After we create our pathway of discipleship, together we will strive to live out our baptismal promises and do our part to make the Marks of Mission a reality. All those setting out on the pathway will have the support of others on the journey.”
