2009 Summer Clergy Conference

2009 summer clergy conference was held at the Grand Hotel, Kaohsuing from 5/12 - 5/14. attended by clergy and their spouses. Keynote speaker was the retired archbishop of Hong Kong Peter Kwong. He focused on clergy being the faithful servant, reminding them to pay attention also to what is happening in our society to make Jesus' message relevant, making sure we do not compartmentalize God and God's purpose on earth. One thing clergy need to be reminded again and again is the importance of self care and the need for quiet time so we can listern better, reflect deeper and serve more faithfully.

At this conference, Rev. Canon David Chee was the interpreter for archbishop Peter Kwong. Rev. Keith Lee was the interpretor for Rev. James, from the diocese of Osaka.
