The Day of Renewal is set for Thursday, April 27, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Redeemer Lutheran, Waverly, with the theme “Building Up One Another.”
The event is a time to worship, learn and reconnect. All actively serving rostered ministers of the Northeastern Iowa Synod and those training to become rostered ministers are invited to attend.
Kris Meyer, Ph.D., who serves as vice president of the Northeastern Iowa Synod, will lead a conversation around important ways for ministers to be in relationship with their colleagues and congregations. Meyer has been involved in education since 1989, serving as a teacher, counselor, administrator, storyteller, motivational speaker and workshop leader on topics related to resilience and stress
Meyer will lead discussions related to the series of brainstorming sessions that rostered ministers from the Northeastern Iowa Synod have been participating in over the past few months. Using information gathered from those sessions, the Day of Renewal conversations will address:
• What are unique concerns for women in the Northeastern Iowa Synod?
• How do we move toward a healthier, more collegial and intentional rostered minister community?
• How might we respond and move forward as individuals and as a whole system?
Registration is required. For more information, call the synod office, 319-352-1414, or email Pastor Liz Bell.
