Raising Questions, Speaking Truth
What truths do you long to speak? What questions are stirring in your heart? Through prayer, reflection and conversation, this three-session series seeks to create a safe space for participants to wrestle with issues of faith that don’t have easy answers. The wisdom of Sister Joan Chittister, OSB, will guide our time together.

The Celtic Way: Writing Toward Wholeness
The ancient Celtic Christians of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Britain brought together realities that are often divided or fragmented in our world—humans and nature, men and women, the sacred and the secular, to name a few. Because of the human longing for wholeness, the Celtic spirit, silenced for many centuries, is now reemerging. Guided by Celtic writing and art and the world around us, we will write prayers, chants, blessings, stories, poems—going where the spirit leads us. We will read and respond to each other’s work and put together a little collection of our work.

Ordinary Miracles: Writing Our Book of Delights
Every day for a year, poet Ross Gay looked for, found and recorded a moment of ordinary delight—a chance meeting, an act of kindness, a flash of beauty. He collected his reflections in The Book of Delights. For three weeks, we will do the same, every day capturing in words an ordinary delight to share with each other and compile in our own Book of Delights. Writers of all kinds with all levels of experience are welcome.
