webcastJoin us for…

  •  A Celebration of Transformation
  • Stretching New Ideas
  • A Challenge to your Discipleship

We had significant difficulty with the limited internet connection in Salina, Kansas.  We did the best we could within the limitations we encountered, but we know that the quality of the webcast suffered occasionally. Thank you for your patience.

A collaboration of Bethany Theological Seminary's Electronic Communications and the Church of the Brethren Transforming Practices, Congregational Life Ministries, make it possible for sessions of the Western Plains Gathering V available to be viewed over the internet.

The Gathering, held October 23-25, 2009, at the Webster Conference Center, Salina, Kansas.

JodyIn the summer of 2006, I made a pact with a high school friend to make our fortieth decade significant. My goal was to complete my Master of Divinity degree before I turned fifty years old. Inside I asked myself and God, "How is this was going to be possible?" Eventually, I was willing to be open to it. My life seemed crazy enough without adding seminary to the mix. I am married to Eric and have two children 15 and 10, so I run a household. I serve a church half time and find many opportunities to volunteer in our community. In spite of the busyness of my life I said "Yes!" to Bethany because I really was at a point in my life where it made sense.
