Lauren Winner, the acclaimed Christian writer, will be leading a one day clergy retreat in Jefferson City, MO on August 29th, 2020. The event is intentionally designed to be a space of renewal and inspiration for pastors. Registrations are intentionally capped at 100 to ensure all attendees will get the chance to ask questions of and share in conversation with Dr. Winner. If you're job involves forming others in the Christian life, this is an event you won't want to miss! Lunch is included in the cost of the event.  The generous support of the Mid-American Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) helped make this event possible.  ***** Here is a bio for those less familiar with Dr. Winner: Lauren F. Winner writes and lectures widely on Christian practice, the history of Christianity in America, and Jewish-Christian relations. Her books include Girl Meets God, Mudhouse Sabbath, a study of household religious practice in 18th-century Virginia, A Cheerful and Comfortable Faith, Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis, and, most recently, a book on overlooked biblical tropes for God, Wearing God. She just completed a new volume called The Dangers of Christian Practice, which examines the effects of sin and damage on Christian practice. Dr. Winner’s research has been supported by numerous institutions, including Monticello, the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, the Center for the Study of Religion at Princeton University, and the Institute of Sacred Music at Yale University. She has appeared on PBS’s Religion & Ethics Newsweekly and has served as a commentator on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” She has written for The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post Book World, Publishers Weekly, Books and Culture, and Christianity Today, and her essays have been included in several volumes of The Best Christian Writing. She is an Episcopal Priest and an Associate Professor of Christian Spirituality at Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC.
