Where: The Hideaway, Colorado Springs, CO
When: Thursday evening, December 2 through Sunday morning, December 5, 2021
Topic: Words Before the Wilderness
The road before us, just like the road behind us, is beautiful, yet treacherous. Though grace leads us into numerous joys and graces, we also inevitably are plunged into vexing questions, oppressive enemies, and unexpected seductions. We will be assaulted by suffocating shame and hidden fears—and when things go well, we will tangle with oversized ego and the allure of success. What words do we need for this hope-filled yet arduous journey? What words did Jesus need?
Who: Winn Collier, a pastor for 26 years, was the founding pastor of All Souls in Charlottesville, Virginia, and is now the director of the Eugene Peterson Center for Christian Imagination at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan. Winn is the author of multiple books, including Love Big, Be Well: Letters to a Smalltown Church and A Burning in My Bones, the biography of Eugene Peterson.
What’s Included: Lodging, meals (Friday-Sunday), snacks, teaching sessions with Winn, practical spiritual direction exercises and content, hot tub, fire pit, camaraderie, rest, stars, refreshment, wisdom, a few surprises, and Jeremy’s famous cheese board
