CHESTER COUNTY Retreat: Rewilding the Way

February 10, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - February 12, 2017 @ 1:00 PM

Todd Wynward, a Board member of New Mexico IPL, and author of Rewilding the Way: Break Free to Follow an Untamed God will be in Pennsylvania to lead the Winter Peace Retreat for the Franconia Mennonite Conference.  The retreat has been opened to members and friends of PA Interfaith Power & Light of all faith traditions.   Download the retreat brochure.

Todd is also speaking at Plains Mennonite Church on Thursday evening, February 9.

When he’s not rewilding Christianity, Todd Wynward spends his time reinventing public education and re-imagining the American way of life, starting with his own. Todd has been engaged in experiential education and social change movements for twenty years. He is co-founder of a wilderness-based public charter school, leads backpacking and river trips for adult seekers, and is an animating force behind TiLT, an intentional life-change movement in Taos, New Mexico. Todd is married with one son.

Registration Deadline JANUARY 20

From the brochure: 
The Winter Peace Retreat has been held for over forty years, bringing together Mennonites who care about peace and justice to worship, to learn, and to share their stories together, as well as to inspire each one to be witnesses in their own settings. Besides adult sessions, there are also sessions for children ages 5-12 at the same time. Come and enjoy a tranquil retreat setting while learning together as followers of Jesus!
