Finding a Spiritual Practice for the End of the World
You may have a “To-Do” list a mile long, but are you doing what you want to be doing with your “one wild and precious life”? It’s hard to know, because there are a lot of voices out there telling us what to believe, who we should be and how we should spend our time and money and power. And they’re so LOUD. How do you resist those voices? How do you remember who you are, and what really matters to you? How do you start living in that place Frederick Buechner talks about – where your deep calling meets the world’s deep need? This workshop could be the jumpstart you need. Through some simple, fun, focused, interactive exercises, you’ll begin to craft a personal manifesto. You don’t have to be a great writer, just willing to be present, honest and ready to listen to the still, small voice inside.
Niche historian, writer and preacher Rev. Russell pursues radical mercy, a cynicism of hope, and a grateful exhaustion of meaning on the shores of the Salton Sea in the Southern California desert South of the Coachella festival grounds and just North of the Great, Great Wall construction site. He is a founding minister with Debbie Blue at House of Mercy church in Saint Paul, Minnesota. His most recent book, The Great Wall of China and the Salton Sea: Monuments, Missteps and the Audacity of Ambition (Wm. B. Eerdmans, Grand Rapids, 2017) is the first in his Salton Sea Trilogy.
