I will be teaching "Turning Our Pain Toward Hope Through Writing" the week of Aug. 11. Class members will unpack what Christianity tell us about hope and its nature. Then they will write about their own pain or some broader societal pain as they seek to embrace the promise of hope. They will share their writing with the class. We'll be meeting in the retreat atmosphere of Casa del Sol on the ranch grounds.
The online catalog link is available here.
For more information about the ranch, clink on this Ghost Ranch link. The ranch is a national Presbyterian conference center in northern New Mexico, about an hour north of Santa Fe in the beautiful red rock hills that Georgia O'Keeffe painted so often.
I hope my photo here from Ghost Ranch gives you at least a taste of what you can expect there.
Classes typically meet each morning from 9 until noon and each evening from 7 to 8:30. It's a wonderful, relaxed-but-stimulating atmosphere.
And, no, you don't have to be a Presbyterian to join us. People of any faith, and none, are welcome. If you have questions, e-mail me at email@example.com.
