Clergy Care Virtual Retreat: “Followers of Christ, Before Leaders for Christ”
October 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Followers of Christ, Before Leaders for Christ
Leaders: Rev. Dr. Anthony Hodge and Rev. Ken Owens, both certified spiritual directors
Date/Time: October 7, 7-8:30 p.m.
Rev. Dr. Hodge, superintendent of the Rock Hill District, will lead discussion on Christ’s inviting the disciples to come, follow him, and the odd situations that puts a follower in. There is sacrifice, the pressure of being different – even danger – but Christ is always there to teach us, call us friends, and empower us with the Holy Spirit.
Rev. Owens, a retired UMCSC elder who works full-time as a spiritual director, will use the disciple Peter as a model of a first follower – the impulsiveness, the foolishness, the mistakes, the learning curve, and finally the empowered leader able to stand solid before the world’s authorities.
Reflection time and guided meditations will help participants refocus themselves on being followers of Christ, in order to be leaders for Christ. We also will be discussing “How to Start a Movement,” a TED Talk by entrepreneur Derek Sivers. All are encouraged to watch it ahead of time.
