IN THE DEANERY, DIOCESE AND CANADA
Diocesan Missional Workshops
March 7, Good Shepherd, Calgary
March 14, St Luke's, Red Deer
March 28, St Augustine's, Lethbridge
Each workshop will run from 10 am - 2 pm Lunch will be provided.
In the past few years, the Diocese has held Regional "Town Halls" to provide an opportunity for parish leaders to hear about things going on throughout the diocese. It has also given parish leaders a chance to connect to neighbouring parishes and gather information and encouragement from the Diocese. At the last Diocesan Synod, we were directed to take a more proactive role in becoming missionally-focused. Our Missional Coaches (Lay and Clergy from around the diocese) will be joining us to share the outlines of workshops they learned to lead in their training this Fall. We invite all church leaders, people interested in becoming more missionally-focused, and anyone curious about what a missional focus might look like
Please register by emailing email@example.com at least a week prior, so we can ensure there will be enough refreshments for all.

Wisdom Centre Events
March 6-8, Dan Hines: Wayfinding and Leadership
Friday, 7:00 pm: Wayfinding as Life: Disorientation and Reorientation Wayfinding is the traditional art and skill of navigation over water or land. Dan will share what he has been learning with the blessing of Hawaiian navigators, as the art of wayfinding experiences an ongoing cultural rediscovery in the Pacific. Wayfinding offers profound insights for how to live a human life. Dan teaches 'sandbox style' with the use of visual imagination, storytelling, scientific knowledge, and meditations.
Saturday, 9:30 - 3:00: The Courage to Lead: Navigating Complexity Courage is a virtue celebrated all around us as brave heroism, as bold acts of willpower in dangerous moments. Yet, there is a more subtle form of daily courage that arises from a deeper source, by simply honoring what is true. A life of courage is following the guidance of the quiet voice of inner knowing. Guided by small group practices inspired by the teaching of activist and writer Parker J. Palmer, we will explore in storytelling, evocative readings, visual images, inner reflection, guided meditations, and facilitated discussions what traditional wisdom, our spiritual teachings, and open-ocean navigational learning may reveal to us.
Sunday: Preaching at the 10:00 am service As co-founder of the intentional community RareBirds Housing Cooperative, Dan has a passion for exploring alternative living, innovative housing, and a more sustainable relationship to the land.
Whole event - $80; Friday only - $15; Saturday only - $75. Register here.
