In quietness and trust there is strength

For thus said the Lord  God , the Holy One of Israel:
In  returning and rest  you shall be saved;
in quietness and in trust shall be your strength. 
Isaiah 30.15

This scripture passage came to mind while reflecting on the weeks that have passed and the weeks that are before us. Perennial plants are emerging in full flower and leaf, and several of the groups and individuals we have received and will receive as guests are folks who have been to TSC multiple times.  We are grateful that individuals seem to find this a place to which they wish to return and rest; a place where quietness can restore one's strength. 
Whether you come to practice yoga with a weekend group, engage conversation with colleagues in an off-site meeting, or come alone to change the rhythm of your life, we are grateful that we can be a place where you find rest and renewal.

It takes a dedicated staff to keep our ministry of hospitality true to its goals. Dennis Kemper, our Facilities Manager,  has been entrusted with caring for

the Spirituality Center buildings and grounds since the beginning of TSC. In his quiet way Dennis sees to it that we have running water, heat, air conditioning, and beautiful grounds. He has remodeled, painted, and helped the staff envision a center that exudes comfort and peace. Thank you, Dennis, for helping us to live into our mission as a place of extravagant hospitality.

Creation and Climate: Just Living or Living Justly?
Retreat September 29 - October 1, 2017
The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori will lead a retreat September 29-October 1


"Bishop Katharine" had another career before becoming a bishop in The Episcopal Church. She is a scientist, an oceanographer. And as a pilot of her own plane, she experienced nature in ways most of us will not -- from behind the controls of a one engine prop plane.

Please join us for a weekend retreat led by Bishop Katharine that invites us to reflect on justice through the lens of creation and the environment. 

Registration is open for this retreat:
Early Registration discount of $210 for overnight and $110 for commuters.

Most spiritual traditions reflect a rhythm of life, an ebb and flow that lead us to the Holy. As your path ebbs and flows, may you find places of rest and renewal. And as you are re-energized for the journey, may you embrace and share the peace and love you discover along the way.
