The Office of Ministry and Part-time Pastor; Full-time Church, a grant-funded program, are pleased to offer a special time for spiritual refreshment for all ministers during the Advent season. See the description below and consider registering for this free event.
Two virtual events titled “Sacred Connections: Advent Soul Tending for Spiritual Leaders” will be led by one of the program’s “circuit riders,” Erin Matteson, who is an ordained minister and spiritual director.
Matteson extends the invitation to all ministers on Friday, Dec. 3, and Monday, Dec. 13, to “come enjoy a pot of creative contemplative worship to warm your spirit and nourish your soul this Advent season. Scripture and sharing, silence and song, poetry and prayer, imagery and other ingredients will be blended together and served up in a savory dish to not only provide ministers sustenance but promote vitality for the Advent season.”
Two different virtual sessions at two different times are offered on each of two dates to help accommodate the varied schedules of ministers. It is hoped that ministers will set aside this brief time to be ministered to and refill as they care for others.
