The Long Road Home

Sat 2:00pm - 2:50pm

Venue: Convo 08


Julie will lead participants through an interactive session discovering the ancient and modern practices of life-giving spiritual disciplines that provide nourishment and rest as a part of a healthy rhythm of life.. Using the work and words of ancients -- St. Augustine, Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, and modern voices like Rachel Held Evans, Elaine Heath, and Brene Brown, participants will explore practices that help pastors, teachers, and activists prevent burn-out and be able to walk the long road home. Mental and spiritual health will be the center of this mini-retreat that will equip participants to leave with tools for Sabbath keeping and a healthy balance of self-care and service.
