Pete Steinke, April 2, 2020. Racine, Wisconsin.

Register before March 15 for Early Bird prices! In case of “life disruption” because of the coronavirus – we hope to offer this online.

“It requires conviction and courage,” Michael Kerr asserts in his new book (Bowen Family Secrets), “to move toward a new way of being.”

In a frenzied regression, society has few slots for principled and bold action.  Flexibility is impaired; blame is overused, Quick fixes proliferate, and the long term is cut short. Today’s high grade stimulation impedes impulse control. It’s a situation for the feeling system to flood the thinking system.  And the regression creeps into our churches and movement toward a new way of being is stalled.

Conviction and courage? Where? How? When? 

The Voyagers invite you to join us on Thursday, April 2, for a day with Peter Steinke, during which he will consider challenges facing the church as we move into the future. The one-day meeting will be held at The DeKoven Center, in Racine, Wisconsin.

For those who register before March 15, the cost for the day is $100. For students (with ID) the cost is $70.  Beginning March 16, prices increase to $110 and $80 for students.  Lunch is included.

If you wish to register for both days, the cost is $150 ($100 for students with ID). Beginning March 16, prices increase to $160 ($90 for students).

Contact Carol Jeunnette for information about discounts for judicatory staff members, and members of Synod Resource Teams from ELCA Wisconsin and Upper Great Lakes Synods.
