Our Enrichment Event was held at Montgomery Presbyterian Center on November 15-16, and the feedback from those who attended has been very positive!
The Friday night Fireside Chat with Jack Haberer, editor of The Presbyterian Outlook, was superb, as were his workshops on Saturday. He gave us a lot of good food for thought. What an honor it was to have such a rock star of the denomination with us! We were also privileged to have Meg Flannagan, who resourced the new hymnal project, with us leading workshops in the morning and afternoon that were just tremendous. These two very gifted servants of the Lord led us in an inspiring morning prayer service on Saturday where we also got to try out the new Presbyterian hymnal, Glory to God (with thanks to our Fernandina Beach Church for the loaners!).
There were a wide variety of workshops offered – including yoga and an art extravaganza! – guaranteeing something of interest for everyone. As always, the folks at Montgomery could not have been more welcoming and hospitable and we were really grateful for all the ways in which they helped make everything go so seamlessly. A big shout-out of thanks goes to all those who helped plan Enrichment and who gave of their time and talents to lead workshops. About the only negative comment we received was that it was a shame more people did not take advantage. With over 60 people attending, we considered it a success and look forward to the time when we can offer another opportunity of this nature in the future. You will definitely want to be there when we do!
