Speaking

I am happy to speak to your group or organization. I have experience speaking and teaching in both church and academic settings. My goal is for your audience to come away more confident in their spiritual lives. This confidence comes because they have:

  • Knowledge of how to connect with God
  • Practical actions for doing so
  • Practice using those actions before leaving the session
  • A concrete plan for integrating their learnings into their daily lives

I particularly enjoy speaking on the topics of spiritual formation and spiritual disciplines. Talks I have delivered in the past include:

  • Developing a Rule of Life
  • Improvisation in the Key of God: Improvisation and Spiritual Formation (applying the skills of improvisational theater to life and relationships)
  • Improvisation and Spiritual Direction (applying the skills of improvisational theater to the skills of giving spiritual direction)
  • An Introduction to Group Spiritual Direction
  • Sabbath and Rest
  • A Biblical Theology of Soul Care (how is “soul care” defined by Scripture and what we learn about how to practice it)

Each of these talks can be presented as a two-hour, half-day, or multi-session. They can be given as lectures or as is my preference, interactive talks. In an interactive session, I will weave together large group teachings, small group activities, and individual practice or reflection
