Bethany has agreed to be the candidate for our congregation!We think she’s amazing, and we’re hopeful that you will too! Bethany before candidating week by reading her letter of greeting. Bethany is currently completing her internship in Syracuse, NY and will be coming out to spend a week with us from April 29 to May 6.
I planned on taking a few trips to visit some of the Michigan tourist sites before we leave. As it is coming to a close, this week of my staycation, I am realizing how vital it is for me to have such times. and there are times I just have to stop and watch Mr. Also, the ideas here will hopefully change over time, so pay attention to the date stamps!
In the meantime, please do plan to be present at church on the second Sunday of that week, May 6, when we will vote on whether to call her as our next settled minister.
Our lifespan learning community seeks to nurture and stimulate the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social growth of people of all ages, stages of faith and levels of religious experience.
Activities and events include: Both the group exercise and the individual interview are evaluative tools that we use to decide who is ultimately admitted to Olin.
The group exercise is moderated by an interview team consisting of a current student, a faculty member and either a staff member or an Olin graduate.
They can show the congregation what their joint ministry would be like, by “being” the minister for that week.
