Hi Karen, I looked at the June 10-12 event descriptino, but I didn't see anything that described who was talking about or presenting on what, specifically, on Friday. Can you tell me more about what the actual agenda/topics/presentations will be and who is doing them. Did I just miss that more detailed information in the post?
I am unable to get us connected with Courtney this afternoon as I had hoped. I will get back to you after your trip to Chicago to see if we can reschedule. Hope Chicago goes well. I'll be interested to hear.
Hi Karen -- thanks for the welcome! I'd love to see any sort of fresh conversations about the church on here -- what TEC can be in the world, how we're serving that mysterious 20-30s population, what ministry looks like with technology . . . I'll probably post a conversation to the youth ministry forum as soon as I figure out how. I'll have to check about the clergy conference in Mundelein, but good luck there! Nice to meet you,
K--I sat down with your bishop yesterday (were your ears burning), and we had a great visit. Summer and fall look like they've already filled up, but a parish on Mercer Island has been talking about having me up for a retreat, and Greg threatens to have me up for clergy conference sometime. I do hope to be up that way soon, but it's not on the books right now.
This is a great idea! Way to go coming up with it. COTA was actually the one thing I found on the internet that was close to what we wanted to do. It helped me articulate Anglicanism (Since I was the only Anglican...and the only liturgical person of the founding group.)
A legend? And in my own time??? That's dangerous! Glad to finally meet you. I had looked forward to coming to COTA last spring with APLM, but I had to return to NYC to host a choir from South Africa at St. Paul's. I hope to get there the next time I'm in Seattle. Meanwhile, keep on!
Karen, thanks for the note the dates Jan 16-26 that you suggested work great. I will be traveling with my wife Ashley as she has the time available and is partnering with me in the plant. I will start looking for airfare right away and will forward our flight plans once purchased. Thanks for this opportunity we are really looking forward to visiting.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to our fair Seminary. I think you definitely made an impression here at Southwest. I would like to chat again about coming up to Seattle to see COTA and the Freemont Abbey up close.
I know Gareth as I was on placement with Moot for 6 months and still intend to be part of that community.
At some time I guess it would be good to mtalk about lngth, cost and all those sorts of things. I'd be keen to come on placement and thing people here would support that.
