Feeling tired? Overwhelmed with busyness? New Years reflections and goals seem in the far distant past?

Come and spend a few hours with Sister Becky Swanson and Sister Michelle Walka for a time to pause, reset your energy and focus on the practices and goals guiding you into the days ahead. Using creativity, spiritual practice, and some hands-on planning tools, you’ll reflect on your year has gone so far and where you might want to make changes to better steward your time and energy this summer and beyond!

Review, Reflect, and Imagine

Getting a grip on the busy-ness trap of ministry (and life!)

Review, Reflect, Imagine 2017

One of the biggest traps of ministry (and life!) in the 21st Century is falling into the abyss of busy-ness. Almost everyone I know (myself included) seems to answer the question of “How are you?” with “Too busy!!” The first steps in getting out of this busy-ness trap are to review and reflect on how life has been, and then imagine how you want it to be. 

I am delighted to be returning to Holden this summer as village musician. Beginning Together is the theme for Summer 2017 – the first summer guests are welcomed back to the village after the mine reclamation and clean-up project. If you haven’t been to Holden yet, this would be a wonderful summer to go and see what so many have found to be life-changing.
