Convener's Corner — May 2013

Spring has finally arrived here in Minnesota. I believe we now have had about three weeks of spring weather. While most of it has been a little cooler and wetter than normal, I think it is safe to assume that warmer weather will soon be here. With the spring weather comes growth. Things all around come back to life and we are reminded of God's majesty and how magnificent His creation is. Via de Cristo is also growing. Our weekends are seeing an increase in the number of weekenders and the energy on our team's is outstanding.

Over the summer months, there are two opportunities for all members of the 4th Day to grow as well. The first opportunity happens on Saturday, June 15th at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Fridley. The National Lutheran Secretariat has created an interactive workshop titled "Rediscover and Recommit." The workshop starts at 10:00 a.m. and will run until mid-afternoon. Plan to join other members of the 4th Day as we get energized about this ministry. For more information, click here. Bob Quam and Nancy Peterson will be leading this workshop. I hope to see you there!

The second opportunity is to represent Minnesota as a delegate at the NLS Annual Meeting in West Palm Beach, Florida. This is a terrific opportunity to grow and learn more about the Via de Cristo ministry. The Annual Meeting will be held on July 25 - 28, 2013. There will be a large contingent from Minnesota attending and representing our secretariat. We still have room for a few more delegates. If you are interested in attending, please contact Diane Purcell to get signed up. The cost is minimal and you will meet some wonderful Christian leaders.

Blessings to all,

Bob Cedergren
