In Your Own Words: Writing as a Spiritual Practice: A Summer Writing Series at Gloria Dei

Writing is a way to listen—to oneself, to the voice of God whispering in your heart and mind. Writing is a way to understand—what is most important to you, where the hurts and regrets and sorrows continue to live, and who you are becoming. Writing is a way to remember and share—the joys, the stories, the places and people. Writing is a way to grow into compassion—for others, for yourself. Writing is a way to deepen your relationship to God. Writing is a way to journey towards the person you were created to be.

This summer you are invited to a series of writing sessions taught by members of Gloria Dei who are writers. Sessions will focus on topics related to the gifts and challenges of the Third Chapter stage of life—memories, grief and loss, meaning and purpose, wisdom gained over the years, and the faith journey.

The Basics

  • Each session is a stand-alone session. You do not need to attend all of the sessions. Attend one or as many as you want.
  • No experience as a writer is needed.
  • Each session will include some content, writing prompts and time to write, as well as time to share, if willing.
  • A different facilitator will lead each session.
  • All sessions are free, but you must register for each one you plan to attend.

The Schedule (Note: Sessions are scheduled for different times and days of the week. New location for the July 31, Aug. 5 and Aug. 21 sessions.)
