from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
This workshop will be facilitated by
Dr. Terry Nelson-Johnson
Alfred Adler once said that; ‘Perhaps our greatest danger is that we take too many precautions.’ Amen to that! They do not call them LEAPS of Faith for nothing! Upon being asked, most adults can not remember the last risk they took that was not imposed on them. No wonder God Remains merely an idea for so many of us! Falling In Love again and again and again; Speaking truth to Power; Letting go of… and Holding fast to Dreams; Hosting all the ordinary and extraor-dinary Sufferings that come our way; Believing that we are Loved by the author of Love — Each of these are pathways in to the experience of God, and each of them are rife with Risk. Please join us as we contemplate the Soul of risk, recommit ourselves to taking Really, Really, Really Good Risks — and enter once again in to the Mystery of God.
Dr. Terry Nelson-Johnson challenges us to enter more deeply into the mystery of grace, the mystery of God through storytelling, poetry, and humor. Working with parents, teachers, pastoral staff and faith communities Dr. Nelson-Johnson designs and conducts formation programs that encourage, affirm, and inspire. The author and leader of the acclaimed Beloved retreat, he is the Founder as well as Creative & Animating Partner of Soul Play LLC, which can be found at soulplayonline.com. Dr. Nelson-Johnson is also Resident Theologian and Animator of Faith at Old St. Patrick’s Church. He holds a Master’s degree from the Institute of Pastoral Studies, Loyola University and a Doctor of Ministry degree from the University of St. Mary of the Lake.
