"Collegiate ministers from across five denominations will gather at “Shared Space” where they will each hold their respective events while intentionally sharing space, learning, meals, and other gatherings."
Have you ever tried something new? You know, some crazy idea that you thought just might work, and you…well…tried it? The Ecumenical Campus Ministry Team (of the National Council of Churches) thinks there is a lot to be said for trying new things, especially in the world of Collegiate Ministry where your congregation changes every four months.So here’s our idea. What if we invited collegiate ministers from across the country and across denominations for a few days of authentic togetherness? What would that look like? A group of leaders on the Ecumenical Campus Ministry Team came up with an idea called “Shared Space.” No lowest common denominators here. It seems many of us believe that we Christians should agree on everything. We think Christian unity means uniformity. But, true ecumenism is not about diluting ourselves, our experiences and what we hold sacred. As we gather together, we will celebrate our own unique place in the Church while we lift up Lutherans, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Methodists, Disciples of Christ, and others for being who they are. Bring your true self!
Shared Space will be held June 26-29, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois. Registration is open to Campus Ministers and Chaplains from across the country.Registration ends May 24, 2013.
