My experience in the WPLP has made me think about my ministry in a much more expansive way. There is something so important and really energizing about having ecumenical dialogue that a program like this affords. I see the [campus sessions] as a retreat and really look forward to them. I get to spend a few days in a different context and develop friendships with pastors that I might not have ever encountered had I not been in this program. It’s definitely enriched my life personally—both my spiritual life and my life as a pastor.
