Following a highly successful pilot conference, a Spiritual Formation Summit held at Kanuga Conference Center in North Carolina last spring, Trinity Parish of New York has announced that it will sponsored two further conferences. The program, a new mission outreach of Trinity, aims to introduce lay and ordained church leaders to the latest and most effective methods for empowering the spiritual development of individuals and congregations.
Keynoters at next April's conference at Camp Allen in Texas will include several who participated in the pilot conference--Phyllis Tickle, contributing editor in religion for Publishers Weekly; Dean Alan Jones of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco; the Rev. Thomas Keating, a Trappist monk and leader of the Centering Prayer Movement; and Joan Borysenko, a former Harvard medical scientist and psychologist who describes herself as 'minister to the church of the dropout.'
Among the keynoters at May's conference at Kanuga will be author Sam Keen. Others have not yet been announced.
The week-long conferences are structured around daily addresses and a wide variety of workshops designed to enable participants to design their own unique curriculum to support their specific ministry interests.
