Creative Writing As A Spiritual Practice
January 25-27, 2016
Come away from the busyness of your life to experience creative writing as a spiritual practice. When we write creatively, we open ourselves to grow in spiritual practices like attentiveness, intentionality, empathy, and gratitude – gifts we want to grow as disciples of Christ. Challenge yourself creatively and spiritually, and leave with a sense of peace at having drawn closer to yourself and to God. For registration information, please visit cedarkirk.org.
