Fall 2018 Orders & Fellowship Event

Fall 2018 Orders & Fellowship Event
You are invited to experience something different. Different because it's not common. Different because it's countercultural. It's called POV (or Point of View).


August 27, 2018


The Fall 2018 Orders & Fellowship Event will be held Tuesday, October 30th from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Marshalltown, First UMC.

POV (Point of View) is a one day experience that makes space for engaging difficult conversations through the lens of empathy, context and mission. A space where you can bring your thoughts, questions, emotions, and heart without the fear of being judged or coerced.

It’s uncommon because in our polarized world, there not many spaces left that don’t have dividing lines. It’s countercultural because often we are sold a false narrative of in or out, us or them, black or white.
 
At POV, we're all in, we're all us, and we're aren’t just black or white, our ideas are expressed in a spectrum of color.
 
We listen, we share, we reflect, we engage.
 
So if you want to come to an uncommon experience and grow in empathy, come to the first ever Iowa POV.

Our conversation will be around “Preparing the Way Forward.”  This experience has been designed with help from the Florida Annual Conference and is meant to help prepare for the ongoing work and conversation around the Way Forward.  You can learn more about the Way Forward at www.umc.org/wayforward.  
 
We hope you will consider joining us and contributing your POV. We would love to hear it.
