Letting God Lead - 

 

Practical approaches to allowing God to lead our faith communities 

so as to participate more fully in God's life and love. 

 

Led by The Rev. Dr. Blair Pogue, we will explore: 

  • who God is and how God is already at work in the life of church members and neighbors, 
  • spiritual practices faith communities can incorporate to let God lead, and 
  • a "Way of Jesus", eight spiritual practices used by Blair's church in St. Paul, Minnesota to give them a concrete GPS for the spiritual life.

Our work at this conference will stand alone, but if you attended our most recent Winter Convocation, you have heard about Blair's church. It is the congregation at which The Rev. Dr. Dwight Zscheile, our keynote speaker, serves on staff and about which he spoke several times. Blair Pogue is the rector there, in addition to writing and teaching. This conference will build on the same themes.

 

Blair will also lead us in exploring new ways we can help our parishioners see, seek, and celebrate the active presence of God in their everyday lives and vocations. How can we support, equip, and encourage each other as we serve as Christ's ambassadors in our neighborhoods, schools, families, friendship networks, workplaces, and volunteer work?

 

Bring a team of your vestry and other lay leaders for a day of participatory learning, story telling, exploration of spiritual practices, and encouragement as we collectively seek to learn how God can lead our faith communities more fully.

  

Blair has served as the Rector of St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in St. Paul since 2005. Before that she was the Associate for Adult Christian Formation at Church of the Holy Comforter in Vienna, Virginia. She is a graduate of Yale Divinity School and Berkeley Divinity School at Yale. In 2013 she completed a Doctor of Ministry in Congregational Mission and Leadership at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

 

Registration fee: $25 per Person or $10 each for a team of 

four or more from the same congregation. Lunch is included.
