WEST DISTRICT CHRISTIAN DEVELOPMENT SURVEY

We need your help!

West District Christian Development is seeking feedback as to how we should prioritize our work.

We are striving to meet the faith formation needs of people on our pastoral charges. We want to offer programs and resources that people are seeking. We want to plan training at a time that is convenient for folks.

To this end, would you please complete a short confidential survey? And would you please forward this e-mail (and the attached link) to others on your charge who are involved in leadership, and to those who you feel might be interested in future training opportunities?

To get the survey to as many people as possible, we need your help. Please forward.

Here is the link to take you to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TTF8N3K

General Secretaries Weekly Letter

Dear Friends;

This is the World Council of Churches (WCC) Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

It’s quite a mouthful, but I always love the idea of joining in prayer with people all over the world. (Or at least in the northern hemisphere. I note from the WCC website that the southern hemisphere does it during Pentecost. I’m not sure what that says about unity, except that it is something we Christians continue to work toward.)
