The sixth year of the Newbigin Fellowship kicked off the first weekend of September at the Marconi Conference Center in Marshall, CA. This was the first Newbigin Fellowship retreat held at this beautiful location on Tomales Bay.
Newbigin Fellowship Director, Jonathan Gundlach, began our time with a welcome and overview of the newly updated Fellowship curriculum. Saturday afternoon was spent exploring the enneagram with Johnny LaLonde, Clinical Director of the City Church Counseling Center. Fellows are encouraged to continue interacting with the enneagram material throughout their time in the Fellowship as a framework for personal growth. That evening, Scot Sherman introduced the Fellows to spiritual practices and closed with an evening prayer service. On Sunday morning the Fellows worshiped together before driving home.
The next Newbigin Fellowship event is a Saturday with Dr. James KA Smith in early October on the topic of Liturgy.
