Before The Cradle and Beyond the Cross ~
A Lectionary Retreat for Preachers
July 23-27, 2012
San Anselmo campus
Join a community of peers to study and pray the 2012-13 lectionary year in this unique event that blends sermon preparation with spiritual formation. Each day begins and ends with contemplative worship and includes both a scholarly and prayerful approach to the Gospel lectionary texts from Advent to Easter. We will study and pray the Gospel
of Luke this summer.
The fifth-annual preachers retreat will be co-led by Rev. Dr. Sam Hamilton-Poore and Dr. Antoinette Wire. Hamilton-Poore is director of the SFTS Program in Christian Spirituality and assistant professor of spiritual ife. The Presbyterian minister has served churches in North Carolina, Missouri and Iowa. He is the author of Earth Gospel: A Guide to Prayer for God's Creation. Wire is the SFTS Robert S. Dollar Professor of New Testament, Emerita. Her latest book is The Case for Mark Composed in Performance, which argues that this Gospel was not the product of a literary author, but was composed by those who told the story in early Christian communities over several decades.
Here's what Rev. Constance McIntosh from Trinity Presbyterian Church, Navajo Nation in Chinle, Ariz.,
had to say after participating in the retreat last summer: "The prayers, scripture and communion – all were very deeply satisfying. The hospitality was very gracious and warm with lovely, thoughtful touches. I even got to overlook the labyrinth garden from my room on campus."
