Workshop selection can be
the most exhilarating part of the Religious Education
Congress experience -- and the most exasperating.
And not because there aren't any worth selecting; on the
contrary, there are usually too darn many worth
selecting, and the problem is deciding which ones of the
more than 200 offered (more than 250, counting the
Spanish- and Vietnamese-language workshops).
So ask yourself. Do you select based on your ministry,
or on your personal needs? Do you go for fun? For
enrichment? To be challenged? To be healed?
All of these reasons are legitimate, so here is a
suggestion: Select workshops that feed each of these
areas. Chances are, you can find more than one of your
needs met in a single workshop, given the quality of the
speakers and the breadth of topics. (And if you can't
get into the one you want, remember that many workshops
are taped and available for purchase.)
Let your practical, playful and spiritual selves be
nourished, awakened and renewed at Congress.
Following is the list of English-language workshops
offered at Congress 2005.
