“Re-learning to Swim in Baptismal Waters”

Baptism is one of the most primitive and primal of all Christian acts and it has been a focal point in the life of Christian communities since the baptism of Jesus recorded in the Gospels.  The act simply involves a washing in the name of that very Trinity yet it in the history of Christianity it is a defining act – to be Christian is to be baptized.  The past couple of decades have brought serious challenges to the practice of baptism.  Do we really need baptism…to be Christian? To participate at the Lord’s Supper? To be part of the Body of Christ, the church? On this leadership day, we will engage issues connected to the contemporary practice of baptism in our communities and together consider ways of developing a healthy baptismal ecology in our churches.

Theme: Speaking of Faith

Carolyn Klassen, Conexsus Counseling and Andrew Dyck, Assistant Professor of Christian Spirituality and Pastoral Ministry at CMU, will speak about the language we use around our lived spiritual experiences. What language works to talk about these experiences in 2020?

Workshops will develop this theme for various ministries of our churches:

  • worship
  • preaching
  • membership
  • mission
  • finances
  • conflict.

Some of these are for a more focused audience, but others will be accessible to anyone interested in the life of the church, not just leadership.

Cost is $65 which includes lunch and two coffee breaks.
