Seasons of Renewal: A Conference with Musician Steve Bell and Poet Malcolm Guite

Seasons of Renewal is a five-day study of the church calendar year will offer an introduction to the “sacral year”, the history of keeping “times and seasons” the spiritual advantages and resources this practice offers. The sessions will draw on material from Malcolm Guite's Sounding the Seasons book, Steve Bell’s Pilgrim Year ebooks, and Steve Bell's “seasonal” albums: Keening for the Dawn and Pilgrimage. You will hear the thoughts behind what went into the songs and poems, talk about how they can be used liturgically and personally and get directed to other resources that are out there for making a pilgrim journey through the year.
