Palmer Becker – teacher, theologian, author and witness worker will be in Winnipeg on October 17 to provide some information and instruction on some new material that he has designed entitled Begin Anew! Here is the link for a more detailed description of the material https://www.commonword.ca/ResourceView/23/18100
Palmer’s insights and theological writings are highly regarded as seen in his recent book entitled Anabaptist Essentials. His relational skills and teaching abilities are well received across the Mennonite Church spectrum.
We would like to give you opportunity to meet with Palmer Becker as he shares some ways in which Begin Anew can be a very useful tool in helping congregations to engage one another in questions of faith and discipleship. We know that this material can be a good resource for your congregation who might be just looking for ways to address questions and matters of believing, belonging, becoming and behaving!
We have included a Doodle calendar poll below where we would invite you to check off the time that suits you best. Palmer is willing to accommodate both morning and afternoon, but we would like to have a rough idea of those who are planning to come! Your response is very much appreciated. Each session will be about 1 ½ hours in length! The location for the sessions will be at the MCM office building! The cost of the session is FREE! There will be opportunity to purchase the materials at CommonWord that day.
On behalf of Kathy Giesbrecht and Rick Neufeld

From speaker, Heather Campbell-Enns:
In this session, we will explore what it means to be resilient. While aging is accompanied by happiness, it also holds unique physical, emotional, social, and spiritual stresses or losses. These positive and negative experiences will be acknowledged, and we will look at what can help elderly persons facing adversities. We will discuss useful resources to support resiliency, including religion and spirituality, and how we can help each other find our way to these resources when needed. The roles of aging adults in the church will be highlighted.
