~ Saturday with Karen Ward ~ NOT TOO LATE!!!

The Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan invites each of you (as well as your friends) to join the Rev. Karen Ward at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, Grand Rapids NE on Saturday 26 from 10am - 3pm.

Karen launched a faith community called Church of the Apostles (COTA or Apostles Church for short) several years ago, which aligns itself with various new-monastic communies popping up around the globe. Neo-monastc communities do not seperate from the world, rather believe their calling is to incarnatate faith, hope and love into their local contexts. Their worship is often sacramental, consisting of ancient practices that tend to stimulate and perpetuate their missional vocation in and for the sake of the world

Karen will be sharing her story, COTA's story and how ancient faith and practice can bring hope to the present "mainline church" struggle for identity.

Please read the following article from The Seattle Times for more information about COTA and register ASAP by responding to Anne Reed. Her information can be found on the forwarded email attachment below called "Missional Church conf invite.doc" (not the link) ...

Grace and Peace
Nate Dawson
