Coastal Bend Priesthood & Leader Retreat

Coastal Bend Priesthood & Leader Retreat

December 3 and 4, 2016

Theme: Leaders of Christ’s Mission

Scripture Focus

“Priesthood is a sacred covenant involving the highest form of stewardship of body, mind, spirit, and relationships. The priesthood shall be composed of people of humility and integrity who are willing to extend themselves in service for others and for the well-being of the faith community.” Doctrine and Covenants 161:6a

“As a spiritual venture, boldly follow the initiatives into the heart of God’s vision for the church and creation. Then, in response to growing insight about God’s nature and will, continue to shape communities that live Christ’s love and mission.” Doctrine and Covenants 165: 1b

“If you truly would be Community of Christ, then embody and live the concerns and passion of Christ.

“The challenges and opportunities are momentous. Will you remain hesitant in the shadows of your fears, insecurities, and competing loyalties? Or will you move forward in the light of your divinely instilled call and vision?

“The mission of Jesus Christ is what matters most for the journey ahead.” Doctrine and Covenants 164:9d, e, f
