Spiritual Life Conference
Sep 04, 2008 by Howard Baker | 0 Comments
After a stirring Convocation the new academic year is officially off and running. Next week's Spiritual Life Conference will help ensure that we are "running" in the right direction and will not end the semester "running on empty."
Our guest speaker for the two days will be Rev. Ian Cron who earned a Master's in Counseling at Denver Seminary and received a Master's in Divinity from New York Theological Seminary. He recently began doctoral studies at Fordham University (The Jesuit University of New York). He is an ordained Anglican priest and the founding pastor of Trinity Church in Greenwich, CT.
An accomplished songwriter in Nashville and New York City, he has two CDs of original work, "The Land of My Father's," produced by Grammy Award-nominated producer Rob Mathes and "Sacred Hunger," produced by three time Grammy Award-winning producer Phil Naish.
His first book Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim's Tale was published and released by NavPress in August of 2007. He is presently working on a book about Thomas Merton and contemplative spirituality. He and his wife of 19 years, Anne, live in Old Greenwich, CT with their three children: Cailey 17, Madeleine 14, and Aidan 11.
My hope and prayer is that many of you will be able to participate in all of the events of the conference and that all of you will enjoy at least one. Here is the schedule:
Monday 11-11:50amSpiritual Life Conference Session 1: "Learning to See"
Monday 12-1pm Brown Bag Lunch, Executive Board Room, Everyone Welcome!
Monday 7-9pm Spiritual Formation Event in the Chapel. Public invited.
