Classes and Events

Illuminating Luke

Next Tuesday, December 5, from 1:00 - 2:30, we will begin another Illuminated Journaling course at The Word Shop. (Yes, I know it’s nuts to start a class in December, but we are going to do the Gospel of Luke, which begins with the birth Narratives.) Illuminating Luke will run for three Tuesdays before Christmas, skip a week, and then continue for a total of 8-Weeks. For more information, or to claim your place at the table, contact Alliee at

Literary Parties

December's theme is Anything Christmas.

The Word Shop's Literary Parties happen monthly, usually the Third Friday at 1:15. Every month we focus on a different theme. Be prepared to give a short commentary to those assembled on why they should read the book you brought. Yes, you are also welcome to just come and listen.

First Tuesday Writers

The First Tuesday Writer's Circle is a place where experienced and beginning writers meet, experiment, share work and discuss writing insights and spiritual growth. We meet the first Tuesday of the Month at 7:15 pm. Group members take turns leading discussions, giving presentations and reading a bit of work. A ten minute writing exercise is part of the fun. Copies of work in progress can be passed out to be taken home for comments.
