W.E.L.L. Schedule for the fall
On Wednesday, September 14 we will return to W.E.L.L. programming with a presentation by representatives of the Westminster Discernment and Planning team. They will provide an update of the work they have been engaged in since the spring of this year as they have considered the church’s current ministry as well as visions for the future of Westminster. The Discernment and Planning team members are as follows: Craig Siler – chair, Jane Sharp – facilitator, Jenny Betton, Alice Blalock, Denise Booe, Laura Collie, Mary Dimmick, Bob Hendrix, Worth Saunders, Neil Shoffner, Rob Thomas, Ernie Thompson.
Faith and Politics
Beginning on Wednesday, September 21 will be a three-week series of offerings under the heading of Faith and Politics. The first offering will focus on how people of faith can engage in conversations and discussions of political and social issues in an environment of understanding and acceptance rather than rancor and disagreement. David DeVries, former staff member at the Center for Creative Leadership and regular participant in Westminster’s contemplative offerings, will facilitate the gathering.
On Wednesday, September 28 we will welcome Jeff Paschal, Senior Pastor at Guilford Park Presbyterian and contributing writer with the Greensboro News and Record, to speak on his sense of call to share his voice in the public arena regarding issues of life - community, politics, faith, etc. Jeff will help us consider ways that faithful people can share their voice in the public arena.
The concluding class in this series on Wednesday, October 5 will focus on local leaders sharing how their faith has influenced their entry into and participation in public office and leadership positions. Participants are yet to be confirmed.
