Emeriti Conference

Meant for More

September 7, 2021 - September 8, 2021
Frankenmuth, MI

No matter what age or stage of our life, we all sense we are meant for more. St. Augustine suggested we are restless until we find our rest finally in God. Until then, we have work to do. These conversations will explore how we—who have already died the ultimate death in Baptism—can make a resurrection impact for the sake of the life of the world.
