Come join us for a weekend of rejoicing, reflection, and renewal January 17-19, 2020. We’ll once again enjoy the beauty and hospitality of the Montreat Retreat and Conference Center in Montreat, North Carolina. Sharon Garlough Brown will guide us as we explore ways to help us live in authentic community with God, with ourselves, and with others.
Sharon is an author and retreat speaker who travels internationally to lead events. A graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, she has served on the pastoral staff of congregations in Scotland, Oklahoma, England, and most recently in West Michigan, where she co-pastored Redeemer Covenant Church with her husband, Jack.
Her spiritual formation novels in the bestselling Sensible Shoes series follow the journey of characters who are learning to rest in the love of God. Her new novel, Shades of Light, explores issues of mental health and spiritual formation. Remember Me, a sequel novella about meditating on the cross, releases in December of 2019.
