Events

Throughout the year, Julie offers events for spiritual reflection & growth at her historic 1905 farmhouse (with the ever-evolving Lavender Pavilion prayer garden) in Springfield, Oregon.

Upcoming events are listed below.  All event fees are re-invested in the ministry.

 

Sacred Reading
A time to listen & reflect (~45 minutes)

This gathering offers us a chance to integrate prayer into our personal life…and our personal life into our prayers. This method of prayer dialog is called “Lectio Divina” (sacred reading) and is an historical spiritual practice of the ancient church. Together we learn how to listen to God through His Word and reflect on what He says to each of us. This is a great first step for those who are new to the ministry of “the unfolding soul.”

Time:   7:30 – 8:15 am. *
Cost:    Free
Bring:  Bible & (optional) journal/notebook

Meet Me By The Water
Learning new ways to personally meet God (4 hours)

Being caught in the middle of an adult world, we sometimes we forget how to be children in the presence of our loving Father. Sometimes we are unsure what to do with our time; sometimes we focus too much on results, goals, and schedules…and we forget to take time to simply enjoy being with God.

This special event is based on Julie’s Meet Me By The Water devotional set. As part of the day, you will be shown how to use this material to give shape to consistent time alone with God. In addition, we will participate in creative exercises, contemplative Bible reading, and prayer.

Time:   9:00 am. – 1:00 pm.
Cost:    $35.00 (includes tea, coffee, snacks, and a full Meet Me By The Water devotional set.
** You can by cash, check, or any major credit card when you arrive
NOTE: If you already own the devotional set, you can attend for just $15. Just bring your set with you!
Bring:  Bible, water bottle, sack lunch, outside chair.
