Next year's conference is already in the works and we want to share the latest with you.  Mark your calendars now!


Mary C. Earle

Mary Earle is an Episcopal Priest, Author, Poet, Retreat Leader and Spiritual Director.

Until her retirement, she taught classes in spirituality for the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas. Mary has authored nine books; the subjects include the spirituality of living with illness, rule of life, Celtic Christian spirituality, the Desert Mothers, and Julian of Norwich.

Titles for Mary's three talks at the conference are: 

"Julian of Norwich and the 'Oneing' Love of God"

Talk 1: "I am the Foundation of Your Prayers": Divine Love Oneing Us in Life

Talk 2: "In the Depths of the Sea": Divine Oneing Love in Suffering

Talk 3: "All Shall Be Well": God's Oneing Love Leading Us Home

Julian's visions lead her to see what St. Paul sees: "All in all". She is phenomenally aware of the limitations of human perspective, without being facile or smug. She takes every kind of suffering into account, and sees the crucifixion as the means by which God tells us through Christ on the cross that even in the worst moments, we are held in the love of the Trinity.

Joining us for the third year in a row and back by popular demand, Sister Carol Perry will offer three Bible story talks based on our 2018 theme, Oneness with God and Others.  She recently retired from Marble Collegiate Church in NYC after serving for over 30 years as Resident Bible Scholar.  Her standing room only classes were webcast live each Sunday morning.  She's a sister of Saint Ursula, author and a faith filled, inspirational speaker.  Click HERE to read more about her wonderful career in God's service.    

Titles for Sister Carol's three talks at the conference are: 

Talk 1: God said, "I need you to make the dream real."
Our determined God invites us to make his plan come into being. 

Like Jonah, we sometimes have a different idea on that.

Talk 2: God said, "I realize there will be bumps on the road."
We sometimes find ourselves in the position of Joseph's suspicious kin or
the elder brother of the prodigal.

How do we let go of the pain and move on?

Talk 3: God said, "I have a surprise for you."
If Ezekiel won the coin toss, his prize was beyond his imagining.

Can we be as daring?
