As a member of the Board of Directors of PPCN, I would like to promote and encourage members of our Presbytery to attend the 15th Annual National Gathering of PPCN, Oct 27-30th at First Presbyterian Church in Fort Worth, TX. “Rediscovering the Beloved Community – Overcoming Isolation.” The keynote speaker will be Rev. Stephen McCutchan. He is an advocate for clergy health, happiness, and well being and has authored a number of resources and devotionals. Look at the “THE TOOL BOX” which is found under the RESOURCES MENU on the PPCN web page.
PPCN is the Presbytery Pastoral Care Network. It is a national organization of the PCUSA: “Advocating, Educating, Encouraging and Equipping for the Care of Pastors in the PCUSA. www.pastoralcarenetwork.org
See the conference brochure: http://www.pastoralcarenetwork.org/uploads/2/8/7/0/2870032/conference_brochure_2pgs.pdf
This conference is designed for Presbytery Execs, members of COM, pastoral counselors, spiritual directors and anyone interested in providing pastoral care to pastors. Past conferences have had the quality of being interpersonal where there is a good deal of interaction, networking, sharing, problem solving, and social time. I will be the worship leader for this event and will encourage a deepening sense of building community (koinonia).
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I hope we can have 2 or e people from out Presbytery attend this event!!
Thanks, Jim Splitt
