REPORTS OF PAST CONFERENCES

SPRING, 2006 (Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center,
Lake Tahoe) May 11-13, 2006:

Fresh Start Leadership program for Clergy was led by The Rev's Kate Atkinson, Mike Link and Helen McPeak

SPRING, 2005 (Galilee, April 14-16):

The first evening those in attendance took a few moments each to introudce themselves and talk about something during the past year which they celebrate. Everyone knew one another much better at a deeper level as we read night prayers together.

Bishop Katharine led a discussion if IDENTITY on the second day and there was much sharing of how we each felt about our roles as priest, deacon and our lay vocation. The majority of Nevada clergy are involved in secular employment of one type or another or are retired from such employment. The strains between the 2 roles and the conflicts are real in our lives and make us more aware of the baptismal covenant which we all share -- clergy and laity alike.

Further discussion on the topic involved ETHOS (What it means to be "clergy." and the related concept: ETHIC which is how we live. We looked at commonalities and particularities, obgligation to self and others, learning & continuing education, prayer & study, leisure, play, sabbath and Compassion Burnout. Further topics included care and stewardship of resources, conflicts of conscience, just distribution of services and qualifications and competence. The beginnings of a "Customary" for the Diocese was distributed. The document is currently under development.
