How Pastors Write for Public Life For faith leaders who want to write for audiences outside the church, May 14-17, 2018June 1, 2018 By Collegeville Institute Leave a Comment 2018 How Pastors Write for Public Life workshop participants (Left to Right): Charlotte Gullick (workshop leader), Danita Nelson, John Ray, Laura Hudson, Paul Lutter, Amy Pospichal, and Christine Wagner. In partnership with Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, the Collegeville Institute held its first writing workshop of 2018 in Texas on May 14-18. The workshop, titled How Pastors Write for Public Life, provided space for clergy to dive into creative interests, expand their language palette, adopt a collaborative practice, and expand their public voices. Leader Charlotte Gullick provided guidance and support to writers during the three-day workshop. When asked to reflect on what they learned during the workshop, one participant remarked: “I learned how much community enhances one’s writing. I learned countless tools to improve my craft. And I was deeply inspired both as a writer and a pastor.” Another wrote in their evaluation that the single best part of the workshop was “the companionship of other pastor-writers together exploring our sense of vocation and the tools to enact it.” Like this post?
