We'll have shared meals with relaxed time together, group discussions, and reflections on our ministries and our experiences.
See below for information about the 2012 Come and See/Be Weekend!
Come and See/Come and Be weekend
On the weekend of November 2-4, 2012, Ecclesia ministries from across the country and world are invited to central Ohio for our annual Come and See/Come and Be Weekend.
This year's theme is "Spiritual Practices on the Margins". We will be exploring the use of prayer, meditation, art, retreats, pilgrimages, labyrinths, Bible study, and other practices are or could be used in our various ministries. But we can't do it without your input.
If you use any of these (or other) spiritual practices in your ministries and would be willing to share what you do with the larger group, please let me know. On Saturday we will hold a series of informal workshops to introduce the practices, share ideas for their use with people living on the margins, and have time to engage in the various practices. So, it's part learning, part sharing, and part personal retreat.
Don't be shy. You have the great ideas and lots of others want to learn from you.
Please get back to Lee Anne Reat as soon as you can so that we can put together final registration materials by early July.
Thanks. God's blessings to you and to those with whom you minister.
COME AND SEE, COME AND BE WEEKENDS:
ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA
SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 1, 2011
We announce this year's weekends for people early in street ministries (SEE) and people who have been doing them for a while (BE). Ham Fuller is Vicar of our first affiliate street ministry, in beautiful Asheville NC. Please consider coming. Save the weekend. Financial assistance is available. Please respond to Hamfuller@aol.com.
I invite you to Come See and Be in Asheville, NC, to experience ministry to the homeless and poor in our town and rural area, as well as enjoy, be refreshed and encouraged with others in ministry at Lake Logan, a Camp and Conference Center of The Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina. The Fall leaves should be turning, the lake is beautiful (seewww.lakelogan.org ), and transportation will be provided for all to come to the center as well as to and from Asheville to share in ministry.
The cost will be $75/person/night double occupancy with meals. Scholarships are available upon request.
I am working on retreat leaders from a very faithful and talented group of people from the area. More on that very soon.
Hope you can join us.
Yours in Christ,
