As outlined in the brochure for this gathering, participants “will explore the implications of making the shift from one story to another; on our hearts, on our minds, and on our relationships with God and the person of Jesus, self, other people, institutions and the natural world.

“Opportunities will be provided for creative processes, reflection and dialogue. Input will be both verbal and visual.”
