SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 2022, 9:30 a.m.–3 p.m.
A Saturday gathering led by Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows
The year 2022 is already being called “the year of all things,” as the world attempts to catch up on two years of pandemic postponements. But Jesus, ever attentive to the present moment, calls us to liberation from the tyranny of being overcommitted and offers us the invitation to rest, heal, and be well. This workshop will explore the resources of our faith tradition for grounded and connected life and ministry for all of God’s people.
No fee, but advance registration required
About Bishop Baskerville-Burrows
Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows is the first black woman to be elected a diocesan bishop in the Episcopal Church. Before being elected bishop in 2016, she served in the Dioceses of Newark, Central New York, and Chicago. Bishop Jennifer’s expertise includes historic preservation of religious buildings (with an M.A. in historic preservation planning from Cornell University), stewardship and development, race and class reconciliation, and spiritual direction.
A defining experience of her ministry came when she found herself near the World Trade Center the morning of September 11, 2001. In the midst of a fearful situation, her own faith and that of others who sought shelter alongside her gave her a renewed perspective of faith vanquishing fear. “The Episcopal Church teaches me that the world is filled with incredible beauty and unspeakable pain and that God is deeply in the midst of it all loving us fiercely,” she says.
