Our Advisory Board

Last December, Morag and Clare attended a workshop in Des Plaines, Illinois, for administrators of retreat centers. At one of the sessions at this workshop, which was convened by Retreats International, there was a breakout session on Advisory Boards.

One line from that incredibly rich session has stuck throughout the year. "What do they know that you don't know?"

Our Dwelling Place Advisory Board is comprised of a wealth of expertise and hearts that are both generous and committed to the ministry of The Dwelling Place.

On October 16th, advisory board members met with the Corporation Board for a day of visioning and planning. They assist us in Finance/fundraising, Public Relations/Marketing, Grants/Program Development, and Facility/Building Committees.

Library Perils
[or sometimes bad things
happen to good books]

Do you have a spare copy of any of the following? These have not been returned:

Christ, our Light
Christ be our north, our south,
our east, our west.
Christ be the love in our hearts,
the thought in our minds,
the voice in our ears,
the song on our lips.
Christ be our North Star, our Southern Cross,
our morning sun, our evening star.
Christ be our light.
