Besides gathering women together for solid Biblical teaching, we offer smaller, more intimate groups to explore faith and creativity in a setting with hands-on experience and lively discussion. We’re so excited to announce we’ve added a new track for this gathering and the ones to follow. We want to engage culture and current events in a relevant way and respond to the responsibility we have for awareness and action. We’re launching a Social Justice track!
Here are the workshops we’re offering in November:
Searching for Home: Homelessness in the U.S.
Beth Nicholls has served at the Cornerstone Community Outreach homeless shelter for over 25 years.
Social Justice: A Biblical Framework.
Ramelia Williams: pastor, spiritual director, and activist.
Julie Johnson, director of women’s ministry at Church of the Beloved in Albany Park, Chicago, will be hosting a workshop encouraging us to make a habit of “coming in out of the wind,” as C. S. Lewis said. She will be presenting accessible ideas for navigating a daily relationship with Jesus.
Spiritual Director Kimberly Penrod Pelletier will be presenting on the topic When You Are Weary in the Waiting.
Suzanne Stewart and Colleen Davick will teach us how to make our own leather cuff bracelets.
Sara Van Alkemade will be combining the Arashi Shibori technique (Japanese pole-wrapping) with microwave dyeing, teaching us to create one-of-a-kind silk scarves.
The two art workshops require a $10 supply fee, payable online during registration.
