Rest. Reconnect. Renew.

East Coast Covenant Clergy and Spouses are invited to reconnect, rest, and renew at the 2012 Ministers’ Retreat. Step back from ministry and allow yourself to be ministered to by God’s presence, by your brothers and sisters in the Lord, by time alone, by our speaker, and by the beauty of God’s creation surrounding us at Pilgrim Pines. We look forward to seeing you soon and welcoming you to our retreat. God’s blessings and peace be with you. – The 2013 Ashram Committee 

 

Our Speaker - Judy Peterson

judypetersonCampus pastor at North Park University in Chicago since fall 2005, she comes to this role after previously serving congregations in Madison, Wisconsin and Elgin, Illinois. Judy is passionate about communicating good news in everyday language and travels across the United States and the world speaking to audiences about how to put feet to their faith. Her passion for walking it out took the form of walking across the United States for her internship toward her Master of Divinity degree at North Park Theological Seminary. While the walk across the United States is how Judy first received the name “walking pastor” it is her day to day desire to walk into the lives of others that continues to make the title well deserved.

Our Topic - Fearless Love

We live in a world that is filled with fear; fear of the other and the unknown, fear for our safety and fear we won’t succeed, fear that we’re not enough or fear that the work that God has for us is too much.  “But perfect love casts out fear.” (1 John 4:18) Join us as together we learn to receive a love that makes us fear less so that we can cultivate communities that are able to know and rely upon the love that God has for us.
