Join us for our Women's Spirituality Conference celebrating the personal and professional experiences of women in ministry. We begin this year's celebration with a Keynote address by Megan McKenna, storyteller, author, spiritual director, and theologian.
On Thursday, Megan will be with us to explore the stories of women from around the world, both historic and contemporary, as we seek to be people of faith and hope in our world today.
Then on Friday, Megan will share with us her love of words and her personal experiences from around the globe. She brings to birth meaning and hope by weaving together Scripture, stories, poetry, and images that challenge and transform all who listen. Megan will engage us in a hands-on workshop inviting us to explore our own stories and how our stories bring meaning to the lives of those around us.
We're excited to offer this conference to you and hope you will join us to explore our personal and shared stories, engage in community, and reflect in word and song.
