Finding God in the Middle: A Retreat with Lauren Winner
Saturday, June 1, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Kempton Hall
What happens when the things you thought you knew about the spiritual life turn out not to suffice for the life you are actually living?
Dr. Lauren Winner is an Episcopal priest and scholar, the author of Girl Meets God: On the Path to a Spiritual Life, Mudhouse Sabbath and most recently the memoir Still: Notes On a Mid-Faith Crisis, which won Christianity Today’s 2013 Book Award in Spirituality.
She writes and speaks with a fresh voice addressing ancient questions: what do we do when life throws us a curveball? How do we respond faithfully to crisis – what spiritual practices sustain us through heartbreak and turmoil, and how can we navigate life’s upheavals in a way that brings us to the other side with a deeper sense of who we are, and who God is.
Cost is $20 per person, with breakfast and lunch provided. Scholarships are available. Childcare will be offered. For more information, call 503-222-9811. To order tickets, click here. Tickets are also available for purchase in the Trinity Bookstore.

Journeys II: From Babylon to Jerusalem
The second year of Trinity’s popular new class is forming now, and there are openings for Journeyers who are interested in coming aboard. In the second year of the Journeys course we will trace the return from exile and development of Jewish identity between 586 BCE and 70 CE. In that context, we will explore the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth and the rise and spread of and earliest challenges to the Jewish sect of Christianity. Components of the Journeys program include seven Saturday plenary sessions (10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) with Jewish educator Jan Rabinowitch and Canon Educator Emeritus Mary Sicilia and weekly mentored seminar groups for discussion on Biblical and background texts and reflection on our own life and experiences of faith.
There are currently a few openings in the Monday evening group (6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.) and the Wednesday evening group (6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.). There will also be a new group meeting Thursday mornings (9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.). Groups are limited to 12 participants each and space is available on a first come, first served basis. Tuition is $250 for the year. Scholarships for tuition and/or books is available through the Rev. Nathan LeRud. For more information, contact the Rev. Nathan LeRud at email@example.com.
If you would like to register for Journeys II, please fill out the registration form located at the Information Wall outside Kempton Hall or click here to download the form. Once you have filled out the form, please return it with your payment to Shannon Tilton in the Cathedral office.
