Engaged Hope: Grounded Leadership in an Era of Ecological Emergency
Sponsored by The BTS Center, in collaboration with the Maine Conference United Church of Christ, the Maine Council of Churches, and Renewal In the Wilderness
September 24-25, 2020 • Online
Convocation grows from roots dating back more than 100 years, but this year, following public health guidance, we’re moving online. Over the course of two days in September, we’ll gather for online sessions, and we’ll log off for some intentional, self-guided, offline sessions, returning to digital space for continued learning and reflection. Our theme this year is an important and timely one: "Engaged Hope: Grounded Leadership in an Era of Ecological Emergency." We look forward to this blend of online and offline experiences, which will weave together to facilitate learning, nurture respite, and deepen community. Additional information and the registration link are available at www.Convocation2020.org
