VOICES 2013 – Sharing Stations on the Lenten Journey
Gathered recently at Camp Christian for the annual
VOICES retreat were ministers from all corners of the Region of GA.
Every year the Christian College of Georgia sponsors this time of
retreat and renewal for both active and retired clergy just as
Christians everywhere prepare for Lent. This year's theme, "Stations on
our Lenten Journey," walked participants through three sessions led by
Doug Job, James Brewer-Calver and Leslie Raymer. Viewing parts of Dr.
Rick Lowery's Lenten course offered through the partnership of
TransformingTheChurch.org and The Christian College of Georgia,
attendees reflected on their callings and confessions as they continue
their own journeys.
As always, where DOC ministers tred, so follows food,
fellowship and fun; this weekend of retreat and renewal was no
exception! The musical talents of Rafael Collado and Janice Hume had
everyone accompanying them with rhythm instruments and song. The
customary hospitality of the Camp Christian Staff, the beautiful
environment of Camp Christian, the support of the Christian Church in
Georgia, TransformingTheChurch.org, The Christian College of Georgia,
and the VOICES Retreat Planning Committee (James Brewer-Calvert, Rafael
Collado, Bob Harris, Lainie Jenkins, Doug Job and Leslie Raymer) allowed
attending ministers time to strengthen connections and forge new
friendships. Commissioned and Ordained Ministers in the Region of GA
will want to pencil in time for this event next year!
