As part of a grant from the Lilly Foundation’s Sustaining Pastoral Excellence program a group of us have to think through individual projects for the year. This year I am going to try and do some interesting continuing education events.
So my blogging friends . . . what events, conferences or other experiences should I think about this year and why? What I am looking for is something that will stretch me a bit outside of some of my natural boundaries of pastoral work or to revisit some foundational studies.
Some possible areas of study/experience:
- Intensive Bible Study
- Silent Retreat
- International Plunge
- Leadership Retreats
- Spiritual Practices
- Exegesis Practicum
- Service/Mission Experience
- "Create-my-own" thing
I have two weeks to play with and a good chunk of $$ so the possibilities are pretty wide open. Not really looking for things about blogging, techie or anything emergent-esque, but if you think there is something that is really super-fantabulous in these areas, please feel free to make your case.[image: Daily Clip Art]
