jerusalem greer We are pleased to announce that Jerusalem Greer, the Episcopal Church Staff Officer for Evangelism, will be leading us this August talking about both Bishop Curry’s Way of Love and delving into evangelism.  Greer has a busy speaking calendar, leading retreats, workshops, and serving as the keynote speaker at conferences. 

On her website, Greer states that she loves "helping busy modern people discover how to live slower, more whole lives, through the rich traditions of the Church Year and formative spiritual disciplines.  Nothing makes me happier than teaching others how to weave simple and sacred practices into their everyday routines."
