Convener's Corner — July 2012

I am hopeful that each of you are enjoying your summer. The weather has been great, the rain has been plentiful, and I don’t think the bugs have been too bad. One of my goals for this summer is to golf more. I am trying to learn the game and I may need to ask for some Divine intervention given the way things are going!

On a more serious note, several of us from Minnesota will be attending the National Lutheran Secretariat (NLS) meeting in Denver in late July. This will be my first NLS meeting and I am very excited to be attending and representing each of you from Minnesota’s 4th Day. I am anticipating that it will be a time of learning for me as I see what other Via de Cristo communities are doing around the country. Watch this space in August for an update on the highlights of the NLS meeting – I am expecting great things!

Last month, I listed the three goals the Council has for this coming year. I want to highlight one goal each of the next three months. For this month, the focus is on increasing weekend attendance. To me, this means not only weekenders but also making sure we have full teams and a high level of engagement from the 4th Day Community. But how can each of work to accomplish this goal? Here are a few suggestions:

As you can see, there are many ways to get involved and support the weekend. Remember, increasing weekend attendance is about increasing our involvement as well as the number of weekenders.

Christ is counting on you!
