Walking in the Light: A Retreat with Jonathan Wilson Hartgrove
Jun 16 – Jun 18 all-day
Walking in the Light: A Retreat with Jonathan Wilson Hartgrove @  |  |

Walking in the Light:
Radical Self-Honesty Amid the Shadows

Lies, deceptions, fabrications, even “false news” stories are nothing new! Hiding ourselves from the truth and hiding the truth from others are ancient and all-too-familiar shadows that conceal us from the light of God’s goodness and love. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove will help us explore what St. Benedict, the Christian desert tradition, and the gospel have to tell us about dispersing those shadows and “walking in the light,” so that we can live truthfully with others and with ourselves. For more information about this weekend retreat please call 508-255-1094.

Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove is a writer, preacher, and leader in the New Monasticism movement. In 2003, he and his wife Leah founded Rutba House, a home of hospitality in Durham, NC. Among his many works, Jonathan has published three books with Paraclete Press, including The Wisdom of Stability: Rooting Faith in a Mobile Culture; The Rule of St. Benedict: A Contemporary Paraphrase; and The Wisdom of the Desert Fathers and Mothers.
