The Soul's Search for Meaning
Creating a Personal Theology

Shelly Fredman

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Text & Thought

Art Green describes theology as nothing more than a string of moments of Holy and Awesome Presence, or Deep, Inner Stillness. What are our own places where such moments are evoked and what kind of belief system can we create, so that we can access these experiences more often, more deeply? We'll consider the writings of Green, Rilke and Mary Oliver and participants will have the opportunity to write/explore their own sacred moments.
