A Covenant Retreat with Peter Storey
April 4-5 at Green Lake, Wisconsin
Thursday, March 10, 2016
Peter Storey, the former prison chaplain to Nelson Mandela, will be our honored guest and presenter at the Spring 2016 Wisconsin Clergy Covenant Retreat.
In conjunction with Bishop Hee-Soo Jung and the orders and fellowship of clergy in the Wisconsin Conference, the Spring Covenant Retreat is a new addition to the annual clergy calendar.
Who should attend?
All elders, deacons, licensed local pastors, associate members, provisional members and retired clergy.
What will the retreat be about?
We have asked Peter Storey to engage us about the perils of privilege and power. We are ideologically divided, and so our relationships as clergy suffer. Although we can muster transactional relationships, we need wisdom in being relational with one another.
The consequence of these divides has been that some are included and some excluded from the life of our conference, in real or perceived ways. We have asked Bishop Storey to speak about living in ambiguity and discomfort, as these seem to be the characteristics of struggle.
Given his vast experience, we hope Bishop Storey can help us envision what justice looks like, and how we might achieve it.
Beneath these matters seems to be a pertinent question, one upon which our vocation is built: What is the church?
