A reminder that on Wednesday 1st October we've got the incredible privilege of having clinical psychologist Henry Cloud with us for a one day conference.
Many of us know Henry from his inspiring talks at the Willow Creek GLS over the last few years. When he's with us he's going to be speaking from his series of books on setting boundaries in our lives. I personally have found these incredible useful as I try to build a life where I don't just say yes to everything (which is my default as I like to please people) and end up with a life which feels chaotic and out of control. I'm increasingly convinced that the issue of "soul care", how we learn to create lives which feed and develop our soul rather than destroying it, is one of the major keys to us living the abundant life God created us for. Learning to set appropriate boundaries is a huge part of that.
If you're part of Kerith you've got two options for getting in to the conference.
The first is to register as a delegate via the Willow website. As part of a church in the Willow Creek Association you can get in at the member rate of £35 (or £25 if you're under 30, a student or a senior) as long as you book by 22nd September. If you need the Kerith login details to get the members rate (and you're a part of our community!) then email reception at firstname.lastname@example.org to get them.
Secondly you can serve, which gets you in for free. As a server you may miss the start and end of the sessions as you head off to or come back from your drinks point, or wherver else you need to be, but you'll catch the majority of all the sessions. Penny Lander is recruiting the serving teams - please email her at email@example.com by Thursday 18th September if you'd like to be considered for one of the serving teams.
Either way please plan to be there if you possibly can - you won't regret it!
