EASTER SERIES WITH CALLIE SWANLUND STARTS APRIL 27
“The Invitation of the Empty Tomb,” a four-part weekly Easter series on Wednesdays with The Rev. Callie Swanlund, will be held April 27 through May 18 AT 7 pm on Zoom. These reflective, interactive workshops around the theme of wholehearted emerging will explore courage, compassion and finally connection. Rooting ourselves in scripture, community wisdom, and the work of Dr. Brene Brown, participants will be nourished and gain tools to move toward flourishing and wholeheartedness. Rev. Swanlund is an Episcopal priest serving in Philadelphia; she has led and facilitated two retreats for the women of Palmer.
