The Anglican Leadership Institute: The Chance of a Lifetime
David Booman Reflects on His Participation in The Anglican Leadership Institute
By the Rev. David Booman, Asst. Rector, St. Michael’s Church, Charleston
In the recent holiday season I was reminded of a scene from my favorite Christmas movie, It’s a Wonderful Life. George Bailey is paying a special visit to his friend Mary, with something like courtship in mind. However, things do not get off to a good start, and then, as their conversation deteriorates, one of George’s friends telephones out of the blue and offers George ‘The Chance of a Lifetime.’ What is this amazing opportunity? Getting in on the ground floor of a business venture involving plastics. Fortunately, George drops the telephone and what follows is one of the great loves scenes in the history of cinema.
‘Chances of a Lifetime’ by definition do not happen every day (and often they are grossly exaggerated as in the story above). But this does not mean they never happen. Indeed, this Fall I was presented with an opportunity that has led me to think in these superlative terms. I was invited to be part of the inaugural Anglican Leadership Institute, an invitation extended by the Rev. Dr. Peter Moore, the Director of this initiative.
“Beyond the Walls” Diocese Offering Pre-Convention Workshops, March 11
The Diocese of South Carolina is kicking off its 225th Annual Convention, which will be held at the Church of the Cross, Bluffton, by hosting a series of workshops on Friday, March 11 which are open to the public and which focus on reaching the community outside our church buildings with the theme, “Beyond the Walls.”
The first offering of the day, beginning at 9 a.m. is a three-hour mini-conference on Grandparenting offered by Cavin Harper, founder and director of the Colorado Springs based Christian Grandparenting Network.
Does the Bible have anything to say about the roles of grandparents? Many grandparents today enter this role without any definitive understanding of what a grandparent is supposed to do. Few answers are provided by the Church, workshops, books or other resources, but that is changing. God has been building a movement of intentional, biblical grandparents who are committed to faithfully tell the next generations the truth about God and the Gospel so that they might know, love and serve Christ. That’s what this seminar is about. You will learn what God has to say about this new role many of us are discovering called grandparenting. And you will learn about some very powerful tools grandparents can use to impact the next generations for Christ. If you care about the hearts, minds and souls of your grandchildren, you will want to be part of this unique event. Note there is a $10 fee for this mini-conference.
