Come to the Waters
Educational Opportunity Dates: November 6-8, 2022
Location: Glacier Presbyterian Center (The Camp!)
Leader: Dr. Wendy Farley -- Rice Family Chair of Spirituality San Francisco Theological Seminary Graduate School of Theology -- Redlands University “Falling in Love with Creation: Beauty, Tragedy, and Compassion”
Although we are all nourished by artistic and natural beauty, we do not always consider its theological significance. Pseudo Dionysius insisted in the 6th century that God was “beguiled by beauty” to create the cosmos and then love and care for it. In our time together, we will ponder the religious importance of falling more deeply in love with creation and all of the beings who dwell here. But as we love more deeply, we become more aware of the tragic suffering of beings – we are first beguiled by the beauty of creation, lament its suffering, and are reborn through compassion. Beauty is both soul-care and compassionate engagement with a suffering world. Pondering beauty, we will understand how opening to beauty fosters our empathy for others and deepens our longing for God. Hopefully, we will also enjoy our time together – with music, food, conversation, and the delight of feeling ourselves part of a beloved community.
After an almost two and a half year, COVID imposed hiatus, we restart this educational partnership between San Francisco Theological Seminary and Glacier Camp. Join us November 6-8 for this time of in depth study and great Christian fellowship. As always, our time together will include good food and good fellowship. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Omaha Seminary Foundation, scholarships are available -- so don’t let the cost get in the way of your participation.
