An Invitation from Bishop Adams

Dear People of CNY:

Once again, we invite all lay persons to join the first day of our 2015 Clergy Conference, which is one you will not want to miss!

We are excited to announce that The Rev. Thomas Brackett, our Episcopal Church Missioner, will present “The People of God: Are Our Best Days Ahead?”

Please mark your calendar now for Tuesday, October 6th. There is no cost to lay persons – conference fees will be covered by the diocesan formation budget. Registration information will follow soon.

Fr. Brackett will help us explore the claim, “It is when our longings match or exceed our fears of loss that we can access the behaviors needed to say ‘Yes!’ to all that the Spirit is birthing in our times.”

It is within the practices of finding that “tipping point” where fear gives way to longing in community, and that is where we might discover that our best days may, indeed, be yet ahead of us.

Again, here is a summary which we hope will be helpful to you:

What: Clergy Conference Day One: The People of God: Are Our Best Days Ahead of Us?

When: Tuesday, October 6th

Who: Clergy and laity

Where: University Sheraton on the S.U. hill

How Much? NO CHARGE for lay people and free parking in the hotel garage

How Many? At least 2 lay persons per parish, but there is no limit on how many may attend.

We expect a wonderful turnout and hope you join us on October 6th for our time with Fr. Brackett.

We look forward to a broad and interactive exploration of practices used in finding our “tipping points” and we trust we will discover that our best days, indeed, are yet to come!

Faithfully, Bishop Adams, The Rev. Dr. Renée Tembeckjian, Director of Formation, The Rev. Mark A. Giroux, Clergy Continuing Education Chair
