Exploring Brokenness, Surrender and Redemption with a Spiritual Practice of Writing
Day and Date: Monday, March 31
Times: 9:00 AM-3:30 PM
Location: Strobel Room (McMillan 209)
Description: Many of the difficult questions we face in life don’t have simple answers. Writer and workshop leader Karen Hering will introduce practices and provide prompts that help participants delve into life’s difficult challenges and its mysteries. In a guided writing session, participants will explore the themes of brokenness, surrender and redemption – themes relevant to the season of Lent, as well as many seasons in our lives.
Whether you are searching for spiritual answers, wishing to strengthen your writing practice or hoping to spur future sermons or writing projects, this workshop will offer thoughtful reflection and time for personal writing to prompts. No writing experience necessary.
Leader: Literary minister and chaplain Karen Hering is author of Writing to Wake the Soul: Opening the Sacred Conversation Within. Her theologically grounded writing sessions engage writing as a spiritual practice and a tool for social action. A 2008 graduate of United, Karen’s literary ministry is rooted at Unity-Church Unitarian in St. Paul.
