Fall Camp at Shrine Mont

Fall Camp is a four day adult conference (October 28 - 31) sponsored by the Tri-Diocesan Council on Aging which represents all three Episcopal dioceses in Virginia: Dioceses of Virginia, Southwest Virginia, and Southern Virginia. It is held Monday through Thursday each year at Shrine Mont Conference Center in Orkney Springs, Virignia. More information about Shrine Mont itself is available at www.shrinemont.com.
    Visit bit.ly/FALLCAMP2019 for details and download a brochure with registration information (or stop by the Parish House to pick up a physical copy).
      The keynote speaker will be author Philip Gulley, pictured above. Gulley has written 21 books, including the Harmony series recounting life in the eccentric Quaker community of Harmony, IN. He also co-authored the progressive spirituality books If Grace is True and If God is Love. He also authored If the Church Were Christian, and The Evolution of Faith.
    We will be entertained by Folk-Theologian Ed Kilbourne, a Methodist minister, who is known for his collections of moving music, quirky humor, and insightful monologues. He has earned a reputation as one of America's cutting edge religious communicators, a folk-theologian if you will, offering his teaching in story and song. Ed combines acoustic guitar, singing and commentary. Additionally, Ed offers a half-hour devotional each morning before breakfast. Read more online about Ed at www.edkilbourne.com.
