Highlights of this year’s conference include The Rev. Dr. James Forbes, our resident theologian, a Wednesday evening River Cruise on the Spirit of Jefferson, significant presentations on the Papal Encyclical on the care of the earth, and workshops on ways to be good companions with Interfaith sisters and brothers in difficult events. And there will be a Bookstore !
Networks are planning their usual round of educational and informational gatherings, beginning on Monday afternoon April 18th – be sure to check meeting times. Our opening late Monday afternoon begins with a conference-wide reception, followed by the opening liturgy at the Roman Catholic Cathedral.
Room rates are lower than previous years, and we hope you can find less expensive flights into Louisville by planning early. We have a large block of rooms at the Galt House, if you want to go ahead and register, make sure that they know you are with the National Workshop in order to get the conference rate. Reservations can be made by phone, 800-843-4258. Please mention 2016 NWCU Annual Conference to get the group rate of $ 120.00 (does not include tax). Reservations can also be made on-line by visiting Galt House Hotel. The deadline for the group rate is March 28.
If you have particular questions please check www.nwcu.org, check with the president of your network, or staff person at your communion headquarters.
I look forward to seeing you in Louisville for a great National Workshop on Christian Unity.
