Special Clergy Lenten Retreat: Telling Our Stories

Some stories get told over and over again in our faith tradition, in our culture, and in our lives.
Whether they're found in the story of the Exodus, the Parable of the Prodigal, in the TV show Lost, or in Harry Potter, these stories get repeated because they help us wrestle with our own questions, fears, and hopes.

Join award-winning writer, teacher, and preacher Greg Garrett for a retreat exploring the archetypal stories of home, heroism, and community that have shaped and formed human beings for thousands of years. Discover how they can remake our preaching, teaching, and personal formation.

Greg Garrett, University of Baylor English Professor and author on contemporary issues and the church, is leading a special Lenten retreat to enhance our writing, preaching and story-telling.
