Special Guest Speaker Mike Nickerson at Healing & Freeing Retreat

Join us in this great opportunity to hear a well-known speaker, Mike Nickerson, Canadian Author, Speaker, Researcher, ENVIRONMENTALIST

Will be the Weekend Guest Speaker at the Healing and Freeing Retreat July 15 – 22, 2011

Mike is from Lanark, Ontario but his message of sustainable living is universal and so timely in our society today..
So what does sustainable living have to do with spirituality and consciousness? Everything!
Every single day, every single choice you make from what you eat, what kind of a car you drive to how much water or electricity you use affects the environmental resources, the future of the planet and our collective happiness. Every day you can choose to make these choices consciously from a point of unity for the whole planet, rather than the singularity of selfishness or greed.

Mike explains where his passion came from for spreading this message, how economic growth and decline really works, how to live within planetary limits, voluntary simplicity and so much more! Mike offers ideas and explains how we can become part of the solution, and be guardians of the Earth to ensure a viable and promising future.

Mike leaves us with the question of direction – “where we are going, depends on what we see as the goal for our future” and shares some breakthrough ideas of how we can work less and have more, as we take on a mature role of caring for our home – planet Earth..

In the context of today’s society, a more-bigger-better mentality could mean the end of us. "Now that we have reached planetary limits and our biggest problems come from our size, we have to look at and reassess whether we want to continue to grow until we drop or aim for sustainability." The industrialized world’s consumer culture of the 20th century is where the culpability lies. According to Nickerson, "We are human beings, not human havings."

News from World Church

3 May 2011

To the church:

It is with deep humility that I have requested early retirement and release from my full-time church responsibilities and leadership roles in the Council of Twelve Apostles. This change will allow me the freedom to give added support to the ongoing needs of our 5-year-old grandson, Matthew, who was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease over three years ago. This difficult decision would not be possible without the love and support of my wife, Jan, and our family. I am deeply grateful for the pastoral support that has been extended to my family and to me by the First Presidency in granting this request.

The church and its mission have been my life calling and vocation for 24 years. Words cannot adequately express the blessings I have experienced as I have traveled throughout the church and witnessed the life changing power of God’s grace expressed through relationships shaped and molded by Christian community. Thank you Community of Christ for all the ways you share Christ’s peace in our world! Your lives of service to God and community are a living testimony of Christ’s peace.

I am blessed by the loving, caring support of my colleagues in the Council of Twelve, World Church Leadership Council, International Leadership Council, and our office staff. Their devotion and response to God’s call to lead the church in mission is beyond reproach. I will miss our insightful conversations about the church’s mission, worship experiences that refresh my dry soul, laughter that breaks through the tension of difficult discussions, and tears that express the depth of our caring for one another and the people we serve. They are, and will always be, a special part of my life.

May God’s blessings continue to find expression through the lives of our members, friends, and congregations around the world is my hope and prayer.

In Christ’s peace,

James E. Slauter
President of the Council of Twelve and Director of Field Ministries
