April 24- April 27, 2018
In this practical workshop we will seek to hone the skills needed to write imaginative, focused and accessible short pieces designed to nurture and deepen the spiritual lives of readers. Blogs, articles, columns, social media networks, formation groups, all provide opportunities for exercising the gift of spiritual writing, and through presentations, discussions and thoughtful review of examples, we will aim to develop our prayerful art. Numbers will be limited to 16 participants, who will each bring three examples of their work for sharing and review.
Fr. Martin L. Smith is well know throughout the Episcopal Church and beyond for his explorations of contemporary spirituality through workshops, retreats and preaching, and widely read books, including The Word is Very Near You, A Season for the Spirit, Reconciliation, Compass and Stars, Love Set Free, and recently, with the Rev. Julia Gatta, Go in Peace: the Art of Hearing Confessions. He has over thirty years of experience in training and supervising preachers and spiritual directors. Now retired, he makes Washington, DC his base for a roving ministry of spiritual formation and teaching.
