Explore Sabbath and Sabbatical at Columbia Theological Seminary, Oct 30 - Nov 4



Decatur, GA. Bestselling author Wayne Muller will lead  "Living Into Sabbath,” October 30-November 4, at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA. Participants may choose from one of three tracks for this event. "Creative Sabbatical Planning" is available for those who are planning a sabbatical leave, and "Spiritual Formation" for those who want to learn Sabbath as a spiritual discipline. The third track is designed for independent study through the seminary’s Guthrie Scholars program. All three tracks include Wayne Muller's plenary presentations, when he will offer tools, exercises, and meditations that support the keeping of Sabbath.

"In lives overladen with choices, we need to learn how to do fewer things more deeply, intentionally, and thoughtfully," Muller says. 

A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, Muller is a therapist, minister, community advocate, consultant, public speaker, and author. 

He has served as Senior Scholar at the Fetzer Institute and is an Extended Faculty member at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. He is the founder of Bread for the Journey, a network of ordinary people who engage in grassroots, neighborhood philanthropy through micro-grants.

Event information and online registration are available at (scroll to October 30). Participants are encouraged to read Muller's most recent book, A Life of Being, Having, and Doing Enough (Harmony 2010).
