November 30-December 2, Myer Park Presbyterian is excited to host the Writing Toward Wholeness Program. This series of workshops is for adults and teenagers in the congregation interested in seeking renewal and revelation through writing. No writing experience necessary. Come prepared to settle in, relax in a safe environment, pay attention to your deepest self, and discover inner resources you never knew you had. Feel free to attend as many of the sessions as you’d like. Registration on the member portal is required. Journals, pens, and snacks will be provided.
