A Day with Martin Smith – The Episcopal Committee on the Spirituality of Aging invites you to attend a day of reflection at St. Mark’s in Waterville, on Saturday, April 24th led by Martin L. Smith. He will speak on Wisdom’s Invitation: Imagination, Intimacy and Mystery. He will explore how we can be imaginative, close to God, and open-hearted as we negotiate the risks of “closing up” as we age. Insights will be offered about how God’s grace enables us to trust Wisdom’s invitation of renewed life. The program begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. The cost is $10 including lunch. Please contact Robert Hoy, hoyrj@suscom-maine.net, 865-3557 to make a reservation.
