Young Clergy Women International went to St. Louis, Missouri, USA!
After careful consideration, discernment, and online & personal conversations with YCWs of color, the committee prayerfully chose St. Louis as the 2018 Conference location. In doing so, we strove to be intentional about the way we care for each other in this place as we lean into the work of justice and reconciliation waiting for us in Missouri. Dr. Karoline Lewis led us through a week of conversation about embodied ministry during our time together July 16-19, 2018, at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown St. Louis. We learned together what it means to live out embodied ministry as individuals and explored the collective “we” of ministry, embodied to work together for justice and reconciliation wherever we serve.
