misc_none Ministers' Convocation-Burlington Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Location:  Bishop Booth Conference Center, 20 Rock Point Circle, Burlington VT

What is Deeper than the Grave? Loving our Deepest Roots - The Convocation Planning Team is pleased to welcome the Rev. Dr. Kathleen Rusnak - Kathleen is an ordained Lutheran pastor with a doctorate in Psychology and Religion. She has been the pastor of three Lutheran congregations, a hospice chaplain in two hospices, the director of spiritual care and bereavement at The Connecticut Hospice (the first hospice in the United States), and lived and worked in Israel for over two years as the director and study coordinator of the theological department at a post-Holocaust Christian European kibbutz in the Galilee, which focused on repentance and renewal towards the Jewish people.

What will we be doing? Most pastors are ministering to aging congregations. How do we do this work well? During this time together, we will explore issues of dying and death; loss of memory and dementia; diminishing energy, physical ability, and presence among the oldest members of our congregations; and our personal emotions around our aging and inevitable death. The Gospel tells us that aging and dying are at the foundation of the Good News of life and resurrection that we strive to preach. How do we preach and live this Good News in a way that helps us and our congregations to discover “What is Deeper than the Grave”?
