Easter in our Ministries
See, I am making all things new.
What new thing is happening in your ministry?
At Leadership Formation Partners we are preparing for new things: new cohorts, new communities, and an expanded reach for formation, with cohorts of Spirituality: Day by Day beginning this month for nurses on the front line. Visit our website to learn about our award-winning formation programming, Mission: Day by Day, and our newest offerings, Spirituality: Day by Day, and Governance: Day by Day. Reach out to talk about ways to expand the reach of formation in your organization.
At LFP we’re also taking time to explore how our formation ministry is shaped by the mystery of Easter. For those of you who lead formation efforts, join us this season as we explore questions such as, what is being made new? Or, with the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, how is God “eastering” in us? Give Us This Day editor, Mary Stommes, shares an Easter reflection to help launch the season. Consider sharing this link with your ministry team and prompting conversation with the question, “Who is waiting for our resurrection dance?”
Let us know how Easter is shaping your ministry. We’d love to hear from you. We wish you many Easter moments during the next 50 days!
