Connect. Engage. Learn. At the Vista Virtual Convention.
When: Feb 15, 2021. (Register by 10/31 for group rate.)
This February 15-18, Centers for Spiritual Living VISTA 2021 Virtual Convention will be attended by individuals and member communities from around the world. A virtual convention is an amazing way to reach out to a greater audience and connect even more of our international community. Ministers, practitioners, members and musicians will be present to enjoy the inspiration and information that our hosts and facilitators have to offer. This year, the theme for our convention is “One Mind. Infinite Connection.”
After an overwhelmingly positive response to our previous virtual conventions, we will continue to offer package registrations in addition to the individual option. By offering group registrations, we are providing opportunities for your community's leadership and general membership to participate without having to travel great distances or risk not being able to safely social distance.
Our General Sessions will be live-streamed from multiple locations that include our very own Centers for Spiritual Living communities. These include:
Stay tuned for our full general session speaker line-up announcement this month! WORKSHOPS:All of the workshops throughout the week will be conducted via interactive video technology that will be easy to use and easy to engage with others. We had over 50 sessions submitted to our Events Team for review. These topic areas include Successful Co-Minister Leadership, Social & Business Outreach In Your Community, Marketing Tools for Community Growth, Diversity & Inclusion, Board Development, Inclusive Leadership, Music in Ministry and more! Our workshop selections will be announced soon! OTHER HIGHLIGHTS:
This four-day virtual convention will be full of connection, education and inspiration that can be viewed LIVE or as recordings at your leasure. If participating live, you will be able to interact with attendees through live discussions, Q&A, & polls.

Why: Life can be a glorious adventure, or anything else we want it to be, regardless of any perceived negative circumstance. We all know that COVID-19, and all the other challenges we see in the world right now, are going to go away, and one day we will return to something called “normal” again. But won't it be nice if the new normal is something that we could embrace with joy and equanimity?
Visioning will give us a chance to do that. Rev. Jeff Ryan, a longtime friend of the Salt Lake Center and Chair of the Visioning team for Centers for Spiritual Living, will join us on zoom on that day, to talk about Visioning, and get us started with this important spiritual tool.
Who: All are welcome. Lead by Rev. Myrna Hirst

Our former Communications chair, Chamaigne Sharette, has stepped down from her position and we are dividing her responsibilities. We are still in need of someone to put out the weekly newsletter. We have video tutorials on how to do it (and folks available to answer your questions if you get stuck).
We would be very grateful if someone would step up so our newsletter can continue to go out each week to keep our community up to date on what's happening with our Center.
All the work can be done from your home computer.
Please send an email to email@example.com to agree to serve in this important way or with any questions you have about the job.
Join us in knowing that the right person will answer this call to service.
Blessings from your Ministry Council.
