The Krista Foundation is pleased to announce the 2012 KF Annual Conference at Clearwater Lodge on Davis Lake (45 minutes NE of Spokane, WA). As a change this year, intergenerational Guests and mentors are invited to be present for daytime conference activities on EITHER: Saturday, May 26th for commissioning, lunch, and keynote address, or
Sunday, May 27th for Colleague-led worship, lunch, and the 2002 Colleague Panel
The 2012 Conference theme is "Growing Service Leadership: Rooted for Life." Participants will explore "rootedness" in the contexts of environment, faith, culture, and service. How do we develop and maintain healthy roots, nourishing connection to who we are and where we're from, amidst the challenges of service and transition? How do we encourage one another to balance roots and growth as we sustain a journey of service?
We're thrilled to announce that Cynthia Moe-Lobeda is our keynote speaker, and a great fit for our theme and weekend conversations! Professor of Theology at Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry, Cynthia specializes in environmental, ecological, and gender ethics. Last year she was funded to work with the Dalit community and the schools of theology in India, She plans to continue to work with her colleagues in South Asia on pressing issues related to environmental justice. She will offer skillful insight to inform our theme.
Interactive Workshops are Underway...
Workshops will provide networking on issues like popular education (tools that make our democracy work), translating service and "gap-job" work into career builders, photography skills and ethics, simple (and locavore) living beyond the service assignment, engaging interculturally wherever you're rooted, and exploring faith and prayer from different traditions.
