(Friday dinner – Sunday lunch)

This retreat will be a close look at the psalms, both the glorious hymns of praise and those that include bitter curses. Why is this book of poetry in our holy book, and why does it continue to be at the center of Christian devotion? Participants will be asked to reflect on and discuss their own experience of the psalms.

Kathleen Norris is a poet and author of The New York Times bestsellers The Cloister Walk, Dakota: A Spiritual Geography, and Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith, which detail her own spiritual journey. Settling with her husband in her grandmother’s house in Lemon SD, she joined the Presbyterian Church. When the church was between pastors, members called on her to fill-in, commenting, “You're a writer, you can preach.” This led her to become an oblate of Benedictine Assumption. Subsequently, she spent two years in residence at the Ecumenical Institute at St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, MN. She is an active member of St. Clement's Episcopal Church in Honolulu.
