Stephen Ministry Annual Retreat

March 28, 2011


Speaking at the annual retreat for Stephen Ministry, Fr. Chris Valka, CSB offers three reflections over the course of the day.

Beginning with the context of the ‘unreliable world’, Fr. Chris explains that, though it sounds pessimistic, we indeed live with great uncertainty.  It is natural to be afraid, and so Fr. Chris offers a response to the common fears we all face.

The second session concerns ‘living’ as followers of Christ.  Fr. Chris considers the qualities of good followers and challenges us to follow bravely despite some of the obstacles that confront us.

Third, Fr. Chris leads a discussion on leadership, using Jesus as the model of the ideal leader.

In each session, Fr. Chris shares many of his own lessons and stories as illustrations to his many points.
