On Saturday, February 25 we will gather for a retreat around the theme of The Sound of the Genuine: Becoming More Alive in the Spirit’s Presence. River Guerguerian, a world-renowned percussionist from Asheville, will lead us through a series of guided meditations as we reflect on the power of sound, integrating both themes offered through the reflections of Howard Thurman, mystic, pastor, and civil rights leader as well as poetry and other reflections to highlight the call to listen and discern as a community. We will also welcome other friends from around the area, including: Lerita Coleman Brown, Barbara Brown Taylor, Bobbi Patterson and Rebecca Parker.
