Pastoral Responses to Denial and Despair
September 17 to 19 at Camp Friedenswald, Cassopolis, MI
Monday, 5 p.m. through Wednesday, 1 p.m.
This retreat explores the effects of climate change on brothers and sisters worldwide, our own locales, and ourselves. Denial and despair help us manage our feelings of guilt and helplessness in the face of this large and complex reality. How does the Gospel of Jesus Christ give us hope? Engage in peer-to-peer exchanges with fellow pastors on environmental stewardship. Listen for God’s guidance as we face the issues of our time and seek to become change agents. Leaders are Doug Kaufman, pastor of Benton Mennonite Church, and Amy Huser, Sustainability and Outdoor Education Director for Camp Friedenswald.
The retreat is free to Mennonite pastors including meals and lodging. Others pay $225.
