Peace Day for Women: Divine Reading at the Wild Edges-Contemplating Creation as Sacred Text

  • Peace and Spirituality Center (map)

“This earth we are riding keeps trying to tell us something with its continuous scripture of leaves.” -William Stafford

Come spend a day of reflection and retreat at the Peace and Spirituality Center, a lovely set-apart place that shares space with a magnificent second growth forest and the lapping edges of Lake Washington. Here we will engage in a liturgical rhythm that will invite a deep remembrance that the community of creation was God’s first sacred text, that within the natural world we can participate in a holy reading that profoundly connects us to ourselves, the more-than-human world, and the Divine. Come away for a few hours to sink into the scripture of creation!
