WilderSoul: Untamed Mind of Christ
May 18

WilderSoul: Untamed Mind of Christ

  • Golden Gate Canyon State Park

WilderSoul Retreat

The Untamed Mind of Christ is an experiential introduction to our four day nature-based immersion designed to help Christian leaders encounter, explore, live and lead from our innate human wholeness.

You will learn skills to cultivate your own wholeness for leadership and practices you may integrate within your own ministries in Christian leadership:

  • Self-designed ceremony
  • Guided invitations to solo-wanders in sacred conversation with God and nature
  • Contemplative prayer practices
  • Creative expression through the arts, journaling, worship
  • Group work in circle, dyads and triads
    You will discover unique expressions of the story and pattern of Christ within your own life within a safe and authentic community of fellow pilgrims. Renew your vision and compassion for deeper service to a world desperately longing for the authentic and transformative contributions of visionary leaders, sacred priests, and social prophets of the cultural renaissance happening in our time. This training is also preparation for our longer 4-5 day immersion where we invoke our wholeness as we deepen into the treasure hidden in the field, our own wild souls.


  • May 16th-18st, 2017. Intensive starts 1 pm Tuesday and ends 1 pm Thursday.
  • Golden Gate Canyon State Park at Reverend's Ridge Campground.
  • Cost: $250 - Early Registration Special (before Feb 15, 2017)! Includes guide fees, lodging & meals for two days, two nights. Registration opens November 15th, 2016.

Ugly Quilters needs Neckties!

Calling all neckties! 
Bring out your neckties!

Do you have any extra ties hanging on a hook in the back of your closet? 
Ready to clear out the necktie tree of all those you do not use?

Please bring them to the May 23rd Presbytery Meeting with you!!

The Ugly Quilters, a mission outreach of First Presbyterian Church of Brighton, is in need of neckties— old, new, stained, clip on they all work!!

The Ugly Quilters, make sleeping bags for the homeless and share these directly with the Denver Rescue and with New Genesis (Central) as they in turn share with people who do not come into shelter.

The neckties are used to roll up the bags in between use.  Last year they made over 400 sleeping bags, thus used 1600 neckties!

Please advertise through your church and bring a bushel of ties in!

There will be a box at the assembly to receive the neckties.

Women's Retreat - SISTR

  • Highlands Camp & Retreat Center

Sisters in Spirit Women's Retreat


Keynote Speaker: Rev. Dr. Dee Cooper

Let’s face it, we live in a world with many opportunities to be afraid.  So much of our world, our nation, our daily input from others is influenced and driven by this strong emotion …. FEAR.  When we feel afraid, it is easy to feel alone or isolated, and even wonder, “where are you, God?”  To be clear, fear is a gift of God that warns us we need to pay attention to our environment and our safety. And yet, fear increases adrenaline in our system, which impacts our health. When we are experiencing fear, we cannot access the cerebral part of our brain to make wise choices, decisions, or even consider options. 

During this weekend, we will consider how our own perspective of God impacts our understanding of fear. We will explore the impact of fear in our lives and in our bodies.  We will practice techniques of moving fear through our bodies, so that we can be fully present and responsible in our lives and authentically connected to each other.  We will also wonder, what would we be doing if we were not so afraid?

Songs and Stories with Rev. Tim Mooney at Bethel Presbyterian Church

  • Bethel Presbyterian Church

Bethel Presbyterian Church
"Songs and Stories"

At 22 I wrote my first song; I was 49 when I wrote my second.  Since that 2nd song I’ve written 75 more and counting!  My songs are about all of life.  But I’ve discovered that though not necessarily intended, my songs serve as metaphors for the spiritual life.  How many times have I sung a song written about another, only to smile at how it speaks to me deeply.  Humbling!  And many people have come up to me to say my songs spoke to them in a meaningful way.   So grateful!  At 10 am on Sunday February 19th at Bethel Presbyterian Church I will offer something I call “Songs and Stories.”  I will sing, tell stories, and invite you to reflect on how these songs meet your own story, and we will explore together how our every day experiences of love, sadness, wisdom, and confusion, and so much more, are the grist for our spiritual growth.  I promise it won't be your typical Sunday!  I hope you'll join me as we listen for the Spirit at work in our lives - in all our lives.

Israel/Palestine: Beyond the Headline

"In recent years the PC(USA) has made history with its strong support for Palestinian rights. This past June, the General Assembly passed an overture calling on Re/MAX to refrain from selling properties in illegal Israeli settlements. The Assembly also approved the use of boycotts and other nonviolent measures in support of oppressed peoples throughout the world.

Interested in learning more about the situation in the Holy Land and why more and more mainline denominations are taking strong positions against Israel's settlement enterprise? Then please plan to attend Israel/Palestine: Beyond the Headlines."    

A workshop responding to the call of Palestinian Christians—their word of faith, hope and love to Christians around the world, asking us to “preserve the word of God as good news for all.” Join with others who are passionate about justice, freedom and equality in the Holy Land. Learn the latest about the current situation in Israel and Palestine; hear from Palestinian Christians and others who are working for a just peace; make connections with issues of race and global social justice movements.
