This week I am blessed to be able to attend a CREDO conference for Episcopal clergy. We have already done a heap of pre-work, taking stock of physical, spiritual, emotional, vocational and financial health. (That’s some pretty comprehensive inventory-taking.)
As a longtime practitioner of the 12 Steps, I know the value of taking stock in this way. What a joy to bring this work to a sacred place, to have time away for reflection, worship and prayer in community with my peers.
I do not know what specifically will come of this, but I know there will be unexpected gifts. I imagine coming away from this experience with renewed energy, new friends, and a fresh perspective.
