Stories from the Margins
Our faith story is rich and diverse. Hear stories of faith through the lens of the marginalized. Explore how our hardships, oppressive systems, and injustices speak to what is true about God's powerful love and grace. Through stories, scripture, song, and prayer encounter the unexpected ways of Jesus. This format works well for your retreat, worship or conference.
In a time when we are plugged in 24/7, locked into a constant crisis news cycle, and burning the candle at both ends, it can be hard to stop long enough to listen to the still small voice of God. Together we will explore ways to step back and to find moments of quiet in
nature and spiritual practices. This is a great topic for a women's retreat or pastoral sabbath retreat.
Based on 10 years of work with those experiencing homelessness, learn about the root causes, the barriers to housing, and the importance of public/ private partnerships to eliminate homelessness. Including games, simulations and creative problem solving this topic is great for youth retreats, college campuses, camps, civic groups, conferences.
What does it mean to be a beloved child of God? How do we live into this incredible gift? Through the tenants of Covenant Discipleship, the importance of our own story, and the power of community; discover ways to live a life of faith centered on the knowledge that everyone of us is a beloved child of God.
