Sabbath has been called “the most radical sociopolitical invention of the past four thousand years.” It’s also one of the most countercultural spiritual practices we can undertake in our 24/7 world.
We will explore the good, the bad and the holy of Sabbath-keeping: its biblical foundations, its theological underpinnings and its practical challenges and joys.
Our discussion will have a particular eye toward the issues clergy face, particularly young clergy women, when trying to carve out time for the "delight" of Sabbath, and explore the role of technology in our vocations and how it helps and hinders Sabbath.
Come for your Sabbath in the City.
Please save the date for July 30-August 2, 2012 and plan on joining us at McComick Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois.
Registration will open in March 2012. Please watch the Sabbath in the City: The Young Clergy Women Project 2012 Conference Facebook Page for more details!
We rely on our members and friends to get the word out about The Young Clergy Women Project. Please share our official Conference 2012 Press Release with your seminary, your church and others that might share the good news. Please check back to download a copy of the press release to share with your contacts. If you share this press release, please contact Lisa Marchal with the connections you've made.
