If anyone you know is going to the Festival of Faith & Writing at Calvin College in Grand Rapids April 19 - 21 let them know about the Festival Circles. Here is a link to the Circles:
This year, we are once again offering Festival Circles, small groups that will meet at least two times during the Festival to discuss a topic of common interest. Each circle, composed of approximately 12–15 attendees and led by a Festival participant, will meet during Thursday dinner and Saturday lunch.
So if anyone you know is going to the Festival of F & W let them know about it and maybe SIGN UP for my Circle: The Relevance of the Arts in Personal Worship
This circle, led by a singer/songwriter, a poet, and a blogger, will encourage participants to uncover their creative talents and use their gifts to the glory of God.
