Certificate Program conclusion

Pendle Hill in Philadelphia
I traveled last week to Pendle Hill, a Quaker retreat center just outside of Philadelphia. I was attending the final week of a yearlong journey that I have been on for Forma's Certificate Program for Leadership in Lifelong Christian Formation.

When a friend who participated in the first cohort recommended that I apply for the program a year and a half ago, I was in a very different place than I am now. I didn’t think I was ready. I didn’t think I had enough experience. Frankly I was insecure and after a few turbulent years, not sure about anything.

Blessing Backpacks as part of our Baptismal promises

My kids walking in to church.
Will you who witness these vows do all in your power to support these persons in their life in Christ?

People: We will.

Book of Common Prayer, pg. 303
