I am a member of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Burlington and a member of the vestry with leadership responsibility for formation. I am now also the formation representative for the Episcopal Church in Vermont for Province 1. This involves being part of a network to share ideas, solve problems and to grow and support formation in all of our congregations. It is an exciting group that has met via web conference twice this spring under the leadership of the executive director, Julie Lytle, PhD.
I would like to call your attention to an upcoming formation conference this fall. “Alternative Models of Faith Formation” at the Barbara Harris Camp and Conference Center, Oct. 6, 2016 to Oct. 8, 2016 will be an opportunity to explore models of Christian formation. I invite you to attend. I also suggest thinking about a positive experience in your congregation that you might like to share with the group. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via email or at 802-863-2961. It would be wonderful to have a group from Vermont participating together.
