Seeking the Sacred Thread, 8/2-5
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.
