RD Vacation – 3 Retirements – ACPE 2017 Annual Conference Early Bird Ends – Danielle Buhuro publishes her book

I hope all of you had a nice Valentine’s Day! Bev and I are enjoying a winter vacation. I am writing you today from sunny San Antonio!   We are yet undecided whether we will head from here so I can fly to Atlanta for an in person meeting of the Certification and Professional Development Implementation Team on February 27 & 28 or whether we will head over to Atlanta in the motorhome. In the latter case, we would be back home March 3 or 4. Regardless, I can be reached by phone or email at any time!

The face of the Region continues to change as two long-time Minnesota sub-region NCR Supervisors who have played key leadership roles over the years, Marty Halvorson (St. Cloud Hospital) and Roger Ring (Mayo Clinic Rochester), retired in January and another from the Illinois sub-region, Delois Brown-Daniels (Advocate, Chicago), retires in March. We wish them well! I understand Marty has booted it to Arizona and Roger just returned from South Africa where he visited his new grandchild. Meanwhile, there will be a retirement celebration for Dee at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center (Ringel Rooms), February 28, 2:30 TO 5:30 P.M.

Let’s make sure we have a huge turnout from the NCR to the ACPE Annual Conference and 50th Anniversary Celebration in Minneapolis in May.

Be sure to register soon, as the Annual Conference Early Bird Rate Ends March 1st:

ACPE’s 2017 Annual Conference & 50th Anniversary Celebration in Minneapolis, MN promises to be an amazing occasion! Don’t miss this historic event where we reflect on our past and envision our future!

In addition to registering & attending, consider two more ways you can support our conference and bring in “50” in style.

We are seeking two people who will be attending who knew and would be willing to memorialize the two persons from our Region who have died since the last annual meeting, Ron Mahnke and Kate Sullivan. If you would be willing to do so, please email Diana Cox at coxflesner@comcast.net with a copy to the regional office.

Congratulations to NCR Supervisor, Danielle Buhuro, on the publication of her book, “Is There A Heaven For A “G”?”.

Here is the info:

Gang Violence continues to be a pressing issue in our society today. How do chaplains and community clergy provide pastoral care to gang member inpatients and their families? What can the church do to decrease gang violence?

“Is There A Heaven For A “G”?”, by Danielle Buhuro, offers a Pastoral Care Approach to Gang Violence!

Published in 2017 by Wipf and Stock, this reflective memoir offers tangible solutions based on a simple, yet effective three-step process that chaplains (and CPE students) along with clergy can employ:

1. Empathy
2. Education
3. Empowerment

Grab your copy of this educative yet engaging book which offers readers an opportunity to reflect on the topic of gang violence!
