Clergy Day – January 19, 2012

9:45 a.m.              Worship
10:00 a.m.           Guest Speaker – The Rev. Paul Borthistle
                                Theme: Building the Bridge as you Walk                                                              Upon It!
Finding strategic direction for a parish is giving shape and form to the call of God’s Spirit in the life of the parish as we together answer God’s call to mission.  It celebrates where God has been present and invites us more deeply into God’s future.
Our time together will focus on hearing the parish story and voice and assessing our mission and our resources.  We will use the resources of the Appreciative Way (Appreciative Inquiry) as tools to open the parish to God’s preferred future.
Bio for the Rev. Paul Borthistle
Paul is currently the interim priest at St. Mary – Kerrisdale in the Diocese of New Westminster.  For ten years (2000 to 2010) he served as the Director for Parish Support Ministries in the diocese.  During this time he worked extensively with parishes and the diocese in developing tools and processes for determining and actualizing strategic direction.  He is a ‘third career’ priest, having prior careers in lay ministry and business before becoming a parish priest in 1990.
Paul is a practitioner of the Appreciative Way (applied Appreciative Inquiry) as he seeks out what is the best that we have to offer to God, neighbour and ourselves
