We are pleased and excited to announce that Sherry Weddel has accepted the invitation to join the North American Lutheran Church as the keynote speaker for the 2018 Mission Festival and Convocation in Denver.
Sherry Anne Weddell created the first charism discernment process, specifically designed for Catholics in 1993. In 1997, she co-founded the Catherine of Siena Institute, an affiliated international ministry of the Western Dominican Province, and currently serves as Executive Director. Sherry has developed numerous formation resources that are used around the world. She has trained and helps lead an international team that has worked directly with over 130,000 lay, religious, and ordained Catholics in hundreds of parishes, in 150 archdioceses, on 5 continents. Sherry’s book, Forming Intentional Disciples, which came out in July 2012, is a best seller that has sold over 100,000 copies.
Sherry’s recent publication of Fruitful Discipleship: Living the Mission of Jesus in the Church and in the World is now available and describes how the Holy Spirit is at work in all the baptized — calling and gifting us to “say yes” in ways that will be the longed-for answer to someone else’s prayers and fuel the mission of the whole Church. When not hanging around airports, Sherry enjoys tending her high-altitude Tuscan garden in the Colorado Rockies. For more information, please visit: siena.org
