Being a Co-Worker in God's Kingdom
What makes a good co-worker? Most people answer this question with a simple answer: communication. But at our 2014 Staff Retreat, Campus Ministry coordinators Angie Pometto and Margaret Zeh Fulford led the Scecina Memorial staff in considering a deeper question. What does it mean to be a good co-worker in God’s Kingdom and at Scecina Memorial High School?
On the grounds of Our Lady of The Apostles Family Center in Greenfield, IN, staff members explored the concept of being a co-worker in God’s Kingdom using team activities, prayer, and personal reflection. They also discussed the potential harm that negative behaviors can have on co-workers, and how these can often overshadow the positive impact they make on the world around them each day. Through discussions, they shared ideas on how to improve their performance at work and to grow as Christians.
For the second part of the retreat, staff members reflected on their unique roles as co-workers at Scecina Memorial High School. Using the school’s new mission statement, they looked at how their own personal mission corresponded with the Scecina Memorial mission statement. This year the focus was on three key phrases from our mission statement: “educational excellence”, “lifelong learners”, and “servant leaders”. Each staff member picked a phrase that they believed to most closely align with their personal mission, and then they discussed the unique ways in which they could contribute to the Scecina Memorial community.
The 2014 Scecina Memorial staff retreat was a fun and formative event. It provided new ways for our staff to prepare for the 2014-2015 school year, while also offering them the opportunity to grow in faith as co-workers in God’s Kingdom.
