Celebrating 25 years of Learning to Dance: God Leads, We Follow”
It is a new fiscal year, and our 25th year in existence! We invite you to celebrate our 25 years all year with us, unabashedly grateful for all God has done. We begin a new theme for our quarterly issues of Depth Soundings. The theme this year is “Celebrating 25 years of Learning to Dance: God Leads, We Follow.”
We hope to introduce our community to even more participants and will hold a "Taste and See" on Tuesday, November 1. Read more... and join us.

LENTEN BOOK STUDY (In Person)
Exploration of Julian of Norwich
Julian of Norwich’s Revelations of Divine Love is truly an astounding work: An inspired example of Christian mysticism, a unique contribution to Christian Theology, the first book in English known to have been written by a woman. But it can also be daunting work! Veronica Mary Rolf, who has been studying Julian’s text for decades, serves as a trustworthy guide for readers willing to take up and read Julian’s work. We will engage the text in our own settings in-between sessions, and then take time for reflection together and in solitude during our weekly gatherings. Learn more.
24th ANNUAL BEACH RETREAT
Hope in God
Over the last year whenever there has been a word of hope, it seems everyone listens. So, the theme for the next beach retreat is timely! Plan to soak in that word with each other and with our holy and gracious God for the entire weekend at the Hilton Doubletree in South Myrtle Beach, January 28-30, 2022. Learn more.

Make Your Home in My Love
“Catherine Powell is clearly a seasoned spiritual guide. Adding a distinctive emphasis on the active engagement issuing naturally from contemplative practice, she expands the classic threefold path of purgation, illumination, and union to its graced fruit of love expressed in the world. . . . May this book further God’s dream for open-hearted human participation in the divine life permeating this world.”
