Fresh Start Retreat at The Bishop's Ranch

Printmaking as an exercise toward wellness; the Rev. Annie Mertz, the Rev. Robin Denney, the Rev. Karen Lawler, the Rev. Bob Scott and the Rev. Tom Gartin work together.

Peaceful, finished prints made for a rainbow of colors and a show of diversity in design and composition.

This past week the new clergy of our diocese traveled to The Bishop's Ranch and participated in a two day retreat called Fresh Start. Through this program, the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California shepherds clergy who are new to the diocese in a two-year cycle of orientation, formation and collegiality.

The Rev. Canon Andrea McMillin lead the team of trainers, which also included the Very Rev. Sara Potter and the Rev. Gary Brown. The focus for this retreat was wellness. Together, they explored the theme, "Jesus is coming and he wants you to be well".

Join us in praying for this extraordinary group of people as they continue their ministries across the breadth of our diocese.
