Sunday, July 25 Full Like the Moon: Writing and the Practice of Gratitude

From the wisdom of scripture to the haiku of Basho and the Celtic prayer poems from the Scottish highlands and islands, a glimpse of the moon has inspired spiritual writers for centuries Be guided by the words of poets from ages past and present as the July moon begins to wane and we reflect on the abundant blessings of summer in our own lives.

Dr. Terri Lynn Simpson is the coordinator for the Center for Prayer and Pilgrimage at Washington National Cathedral. Celtic spirituality is her path, writing is her practice, and inviting people into thin places where they may share their stories and experience the presence of the Holy is her work. In addition to having a graduate degree in theology and a doctorate in Spirituality and Story, Terri is a poet and long-time student of Celtic spirituality. Grounded in the three-fold practices of prayer, pilgrimage, and poetry, she weaves strands of these Celtic influences into the retreats, pilgrimages and workshops she leads in the US and in the UK for churches, healing ministries, women’s groups, and faith based non-profit organizations.
