“For if grace woke me to God’s presence in the world and in my heart, it also woke me to his absence. I never truly felt the pain of unbelief until I began to believe.”

A Morning for Writers: Craft Talk with Christian Wiman 

Saturday, May 16, 9:00 - 11:00 am

“Faith steals upon you like dew: some days you wake and it is there. And like dew, it gets burned off in the rising sun of anxieties, ambitions, distractions.”

Writing requires solitude—but when solitude is too frequent and too deep, a writer can be isolated. This process-based morning will be a discussion with writers seeking to weave their spiritual walk into their work.

Seeking the Sacred Thread

with Barbara Brown Taylor and John Philip Newell

Sunday - Wednesday | August 2 - August 5, 2015

With an emphasis on the essential sacredness of God’s creation we will re awaken our hunger for wholeness and vitality in our faith journeys. These rich days will refresh our souls and equip us for a fresh articulation of God’s re-birthing. Through reflection, prayer, music, silence, art, worship, conversations, meals, and contemplative practices we will immerse ourselves and listen to matters of the heart – life and faith in community.
