Retired Clergy Affinity Group to Launch in September

Retired Clergy Affinity Group to Launch in September

Share
A Season of Jubilee, a new affinity group for newly retired (within the past 3 years) and nearly retired (exploring idea of retirement) SNEUCC clergy, launches this September.
 
"Retirement can be a time of excitement and anticipation. It can also be a time of anxiety and isolation," said Center for Transformational Leadership Director Bridget Johnson. "The Center for Transformational Leadership is launching a new affinity group to support our newly (and nearly!) retired clergy during this time of transition. We invite you to become a member of this new cohort as we explore the many facets of a healthy and productive retirement while building a new network of support and engagement."
 
The Season of Jubilee Affinity Group will be between 12 and 15 members large and will meet a total of 6 times over the course of 12 months.  We will launch as a hybrid model of both virtual and, hopefully, in-person gatherings.
 
The group begins on Thursday, Sept. 30, with a virtual discussion with Bruce Epperly about his book, The Jubilee Years: Embracing Clergy Retirement. The following five gathering topics will explore meaningful service in retirement, ways to navigate spiritual and emotional changes, new ways to kindle and sustain joy, and spiritual and physical health and well-being.
 
Each gathering would be on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday from 9 AM – 2 PM and include a time for conversation in small groups and an opportunity for spiritual direction, etc.
 
The cost per attendee is $150.00.
