Register Now! Big Event 6.0

We're closing in on the deadline! Now's your chance to register for Big Event 6.0, with a program by Rachel Hackenberg, taking place on Carnival Fascination out of Jacksonville, Florida, Monday, January 28 to Saturday, February 2, 2013.

Here is a description of Rachel's program, "In Her Own Words":

Ministers are handlers of words -- handlers of The Word -- although our time with words and Word is often shortened or strained by a variety of responsibilities.

So join us for Big Event 6.0 to enjoy an un-rushed, playful time with words that will encourage your spirit, enhance your preaching, and pepper your worship with ideas!

Session One -- The Word Became Flesh (remembering our childlike wonder & playfulness with words)
Session Two -- Word Mandalas (creatively exploring the breadth of words)
Session Three -- Foolish Questions (using humor to "break the ice" with church-y language)
Session Four -- In Our Own Words (lifting up our own writers' voices in prayers and psalms)
Session Five -- Women of Few Words (drafting our words for the upcoming Lenten season)

Registration will be limited to 40, and we have received many already. The cost for an oceanview berth will be $500; for an interior berth, $450. This includes a registration fee but does not include your travel to and from Jacksonville. We think you'll find the cruise setting offers a unique combination of fun and rest; it's particularly helpful when you have to unplug!

Please email RevGalBlogPals for a registration form and brochure containing payment details, or with any questions.

  1. Wish I could - alas, once again the BE falls too close the the required first call retreat for me to be able to attend. It looks like I'll have to wait to BE 8.0!
