MINISTRY ON THE MARGINS

Some are called to minister at the edges of church. Some are called to minister at the edges of society. Some are called to minister at the edges of the world. The people who live at these edges include those impacted by poverty, immigration status, mental health or addiction issues, sexuality or gender identity, imprisonment, and other factors. This retreat can assist all those called to such margins to grow as persons, to seek proper supervision, and to not lose hope while serving others.

I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
