2012 theme and Keynote Speaker

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. She will offer skillful insight to inform our theme: Growing Service Leadership: Rooted for Life. 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.

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.

The 2002 Colleague wisdom panel includes: Ph.D. professors, camp directors, parents of internationally adopted children, medical/law expert students and professionals, and more.

Again, if you have any questions or hesitations, please contact, or anyone on staff, and we'll be happy to help sort out the details.
