Special Program

Spiritual Reading, Writing and Ruminating
Randon Billings Noble

Tenth-century monk Guigo the Carthusian wrote, “Reading puts as it were whole food into your mouth; meditation chews it and breaks it down; prayer finds its savor; contemplation is the sweetness that so delights and strengthens.” Nearly one thousand years later, author Natalie Goldberg teaches that “as writers we live life twice, like a cow that eats its food once and then regurgitates it to chew and digest it again. We have a second chance at biting into our experience and examining it… Slow down now, touch what is around you, and out of care and compassion for each moment and detail, put pen to paper and begin to write.”

Take an evening to slow down and join writer Randon Billings Noble to explore how writing about something as simple as a bread recipe can spark contemplation, meditation and reflection.

Meet in Bethlehem Chapel.
