Registration for Dreams & Visions, the 2014 Proclaim Retreat, begins this Friday, January 10th! The Proclaim Retreat is an annual gathering of Proclaim, the professional community for publicly identified LGBTQ Lutheran rostered leaders, seminarians and candidates. It is a time of renewal, learning, connections, laughter, worship, and play. This year we are gathering May 4-7, 2014 at Heartwood Conference Center and Retreat in Trego, WI.
Being a publicly identified LGBTQ leader in our church can be both a blessing and a challenge. Gathering for support, celebration, and community is critical for us and for the ministries we serve, so that we can continue, with boldness, to proclaim the Good News!
Help us get the word out about ELM, Proclaim, and the retreat. We are sending retreat posters to seminaries and divinity schools (poster pictured). Are there other places where we can get the word out? Email program director, Jen Rude (programdirector [at] elm.org), if you’d like us to send you some snazzy posters.
Check out the Proclaim Retreat site for more details, information about scholarships, and to register, beginning January 10th!
Thank you to the Philip N. Knutson Endowment, the Carpenter Foundation, and other ELM supporters for special contributions for this retreat.
