Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Greetings. I am writing to you to remind you to register for the one remaining boundary training event on Friday October 23. As friends in Christ, we want to foster healthy vocational and personal boundaries. It is for that reason that the Presbytery of Philadelphia is requiring all clergy, commission and committee members to attend one of these remaining workshops.
The nearly 130 teaching and ruling elders that attended the first two training events were practically unanimous in their appreciation of the workshop facilitator, Dr. David Olsen. He was interesting, informative, and practical. Additionally, he addressed the complexity of boundaries and ministry, provided clear advice with regards to social media and email, and offered good resources for all of us to create space for smart practices and healthy boundaries.
This last seminar on October 23 will be held at The Church on The Mall. Beginning at 9 a.m. and ending approximately at 3 p.m. the cost to each participant is $20 and lunch will be provided. Child care will be provided if needed and should be requested upon registration. Please register by October 1st for this event.
The Presbytery recognizes the many commitments and sacrifices ministry requires of you. It is our hope that you will find this seminar to be not just another requirement, but also a blessing. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Gratefully yours in Christ,
Kevin Porter, Stated Clerk
