It is a pleasure to speak with pastors & preachers, students & teachers, churches & religious groups, writers & seekers on themes of life and faith and the words that connect us. A select list of events at which I’ve spoken is outlined below.
In all settings, I create authentic space in which we can stretch our spirits through reflection and conversation. Please email me to discuss a keynote or preaching invitation, workshop or retreat event, or other potential speaking engagement.
