Fifty Days After Passover…

…let the harvesting begin! It’s Pentecost! Who will bring in this plentiful harvest? Is the Church ready? Are the workers from our churches willing to get out into these dangerous fields and gently harvest the angry ones who have lost all confidence in the body of Christ to respond, to stand up against injustice?

The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Though the enemy has sown weed among the young protestors, yet the wheat has grown and is ready. Will the Church open its eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for the harvest!

Let us not become weary in doing what is right, for we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. So many are depending on us to not be quiet, to not give up, to be strong, to be the body of Christ.

Announcing CPE…

A parish-based CPE Unit (Unit 1, Level 1) will begin August 3rd. Most group meetings in this unit will be on Zoom, and some will be held in Union City and Dyersburg. This will be a full-time unit taking place over a 12-week period. All required reading materials are included in the tuition and will be accessible online. A Master of Divinity degree (or the equivalent) is a required part of the application for admission. Although CPE is mainly taken by those who want to be chaplains (since four CPE units are the standard minimum for applying to be a Board Certified Chaplain), CPE is also for people in parish ministry who want to strengthen their professional and pastoral care skills.
