RCA Spring Fling Retreat Planned for Late April

March 13, 2009

The Spring Fling Retreat - an annual event sponsored by the Retired Clergy Association of the California-Nevada Annual Conference - will take place Wed.-Thurs., April 22-23, at Christ the King Retreat Center in Citrus Heights, California.


The Rev. Dr. Eugene Lowry, renowned author and lecturer, will be the featured speaker.


The Spring Fling also will feature a dialogue with Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr., resident Bishop of the Cal-Nevada Conference.


Other persons with special roles include Robert Olmstead, David Slorpe, William McCord, and Dick and Barbara Ernst. 


Dr. Lowry, a "Preacher, Professor, Pianist, and Producer," has taught at St. Paul School of Theology in Kansas City for more than 30 years, and has authored six books on narrative preaching, written many articles, spoken to more than 20 denominations, and performed in countless concerts. More than a dozen CDs of his performances are available.


He has been selected to offer the 2009 Lyman Beecher Lectures on Preaching at Yale Divinity School.


Dr. Lowry's lectures are known to be filled with profound insight, as well as wit and humor.


The 2009 Spring Fling Retreat promises to be truly an outstanding event which you won't want to miss. To encourage participation, the RCA is making a one-time-only half price offer for the retreat, food, and lodging to retired clergy who are registering to attend for the first time.
