Clergy Event- Advent Hearts and Minds: Preaching and Self Care with Creation Care in Mind. 

October 29, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Advent Hearts and Minds: Preaching and Self Care with Creation Care in Mind. 

A conversation for and with clergy people. 

Oct. 29, 4-5:30 PM Eastern Time   Register Here. 

We wait. We are in the midst of deep challenges globally and locally as our congregations face the division associated with an upcoming election as well as systemic racism, COVID-19, and the climate crisis. You are leader in this particular time and place.  The burden is heavy.  Our hope is that you might find some seeds of inspiration to help with Advent worship planning and sermon preparation.  More than that we hope you will find a few minutes of connection, care, prayer and support in our breakout rooms.

The meeting will include:  15-minute teachings & exegesis on each of the Advent 2020 Year B texts for sermon & worship preparation and Clergy self-care through contemplative practice, prayer, and connection 

Our Lectionary presenters will be:

Rev. Dr. Leah Schade, Assistant Professor of Preaching and Worship Lexington Theological Seminary
Rev. Dr. Wilson Dickinson, Director of D.Min Program at Lexington Theological Seminary
Rev. Derrick Weston, Faith and Leadership
Rev. Anna Woofenden, Pastor of the Garden Church, San Pedro, CA

This is a free offering for ordained or commissioned Clergy from Green Chalice of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and the Creation Care Alliance.
