Joint Convocations 2012

Share it Please
Today Is the last full day of the conference. It featured more historic events: joint meetings of the clergy, musicians, laity, prayer practitioners and ministerial students.

Michael Gott co-wrote a song with Melissa Phillippe that was sung at the ministers meeting where teary eyed open hearted ministers acknowledged years of service.

Musicians and lay people met separately and I didn't get a chance to hear more than a few sentences in each meeting before heading to the Holmes Institute. The teen program room was empty and the young adults were nowhere to be seen. Hmmm.

Panels of ministers answered questions from students and all the while there was a yacht race on the bay.

By the way it's Liessa Leggit's birthday.

This afternoon Revs Waterhouse spoke about building spiritual community through sacred service, Grace Lovejoy spoke about visioning and Linda Watson spoke about the renaissance and regenesis of our communities. There was a conversation with Rev. Deborah Johnson about diversity and Rev. Louisa Gravelle talked about Interfaith Councils.

Tonight Global Youth Measenger Jake Matthews will speak, and so will Dr. David Ault and I.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
