This is the last week to register for The Gathering. The last day is February 7. The deadline for registering is given to us by the retreat center so that they might plan for our meals and our space while we are together. You can find more information about the event on the website:
If you would like to prepare for our sessions with Diana Butler Bass, she suggests her books “Christianity After Religion” and “Grounded.” Both are available on Cokesbury and Amazon.
On the first day, the meeting of The Orders will occur (you will see that on the schedule found on the website). We will also have a table set up for a stole, robe, and clergy shirt exchange. We have a group of stoles and robes given by a retired pastor’s widow to start the exchange; bring something you would like to pass on to place on the table. It is strongly suggested that you put your name on it so that you may have it back if no one else wants it!
