The Rev. Paul Feider retired from active ministry in 2016. He had served as Vicar of St. John's, New London and St. John's Shawano. After retirement he was chosen to be President of the board for a national healing organization, the Order of St. Luke, working for four years to help revitalize that organization. There has also been travel, talks and supporting other healing organizations.
Fr. Paul has two books. 2021's Healing Miracles in Acts of the Apostles highlights 18 miracles in Acts and includes stories of some happening today. Discussion questions are provided at the end of each chapter. This year's Where Do I Come From? My True Identity takes the reader on a spiritual journey working off reflections from the Gospel of John. It also includes discussion questions.
Are you a lay leader or pastor who seeks to ground your commitment to justice in a deeper spirituality, and connect with the message of the scriptures in a more profound way? Are you looking for an educational opportunity that allows plenty of room to breathe, reflect, and integrate what you’ve learned? The Washington Island Forum experience is what you’re looking for.
This year's Forum topic of “A Revolution of Values: The Bible, the Poor, & a Moral Imagination for Faith in Our Common Life” is cosponsored by the Wisconsin Council of Churches and The Christian Century magazine. Enjoy worship, workshops, discussion, and contemplation in an ecumenical retreat setting on Washington Island, just six miles off the tip of Door County Wisconsin. The week begins on Monday afternoon with a welcome and opening picnic at Trinity Lutheran Church. Tuesday through Thursday, ground yourself in morning prayer, then attend presentations by our speaker at the Trueblood Performing Arts Center. In the afternoon, choose optional discussions or island recreation. Friday begins with a Eucharist, features a final presentation, and concludes by noon.
