This August my wife and I are opening our home to offer a weekend getaway and workshop.
It will be part study, part fellowship, part retreat.
The theme is “Human Nature, Work, and Leisure.”
Lectures, discussions, readings, and meals, surrounded by the other-worldly peace of our corner of the Shenandoah Valley. It will be an occasion to meet new people and to reflect together, in a context of hospitality, on how to live the human vocation in the contemporary world rooted in timeless insights.
