2016 Older Adult Retreat

The Older Adult Retreat will be held
April 25-27, 2016 at Laurel Ridge.older Adult retreat 2016
The program features
the Rev. Ginny Tobiassen of Home Moravian Church, and the Rev. Keith Stirewalt, Advance Care Planning Coordinator and Independent Living Donor Advocate, FaithHealthNC. The retreat will be themed
“Mortal Wellness: Catching the ‘Leading Causes of Life.'”

Instead of living in fear of our mortality, what would happen if we focused on life-giving qualities such as: Connection, Coherence, Agency, Blessing, and Hope? How are these represented in Scripture? How do they interact with our faith and our community, and how do they enhance our daily lives?

Join other older adults for a retreat that includes Bible study, reflection, and fellowship centered around these five “Leading Causes of Life.”

leadership_focusClick here to view a YouTube playlist of multiple workshop preview videos. Please do share!

Being the church in the twenty-first century calls us to new challenges and demands greater commitment and understanding of our faith and action. For Moravians, Christianity is grounded in the living experience of faith in Christ, active love for others, and joyful hope. This living relationship with Christ is born and nurtured in local faith communities, in relationship with and in service to one another and the world. This year, we’ll explore what it means to “live the essentials!” A day of learning and fellowship, Leadership Focus provides education, information, training, and discussion opportunities for Southern Province Moravians

The 2016 Leadership Focus event will be held Saturday, February 27 at Fairview Moravian Church in Winston-Salem, NC. Registration information can be found here (print/mail-in) and here (online).
