This year, the Christian Theological Seminary awarded Lilly Endowment National Clergy Renewal Program Grants to The Rev. Kate Atkinson, St. Paul's Church, Concord and The Rev. Alanna Van Antwerpen, Church of the Good Shepherd, Nashua. The Lilly Grants allow congregations to support their pastors with the gift of extended time away from ministerial duties and responsibilities. Pastors use the respite from congregational leadership for reflection and renewal, which often includes travel, scholarly research and immersive experiences with different cultures and traditions. Congratulations to Alanna+ and Kate+!
