“I pray to the birds. I pray to the birds because I believe they will carry the messages of my heart upward. I pray to them because I believe in their existence, the way their songs begin and end each day—the invocations and benedictions of Earth. I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear. And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.”
― Terry Tempest Williams, Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place
August Retreat with Barbara Brown Taylor & John Philip Newell
with Barbara Brown Taylor and John Philip Newell
August 2 - August 5, 2015
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.
Barbara and John will be joined by Artist in Residence Beth Grossman, Writer in Residence Karen Hering, and musicians Sara Thomsen and Larry Reynolds.
