Fall Camp

October 25 @ 4:00 pm - October 28 @ 2:00 pm

The Tri Diocesan Council on Aging hosts this wonderful four day conference at Shrine Mont.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Terry Hershey, an author, humorist, inspirational speaker, dad, ordained minister, golf addict, and smitten by French wine. He divides his time between designing sanctuary gardens and sharing his practice of “pausing” and “sanctuary,” to help us rest, renew, and live wholehearted.

 

The Rt. Rev. Martin Townsend will be the chaplain for 2021.

 

Singer, Story Teller and Folk Theologian Ed Kilbourne is known for his collections of moving music, quirky humor, and insightful monologues. He has earned a reputation as one of America’s cutting edge religious communicators, a folk-theologian if you will, offering his teaching in story and song. Ed combines acoustic guitar, singing and commentary with a storytelling style often compared to that of Garrison Keillor, the radio humorist from ‘Lake Wobegon’.

 

Frances Fuller who writes out of the overflow of a long, varied life will speak on Tuesday evening. A child of the depression, she has earned degrees in journalism, English and religious education, traveled extensively, built a publishing house in the Middle East, survived several wars, and written numerous books (some published only in Arabic), including the triple award-winning In Borrowed Houses.

Meanwhile, she was a wife for 63 years, a Bible teacher, and public speaker while raising three sons and two daughters. Her ten grandchildren are her hope for the world.

She wrote the final chapter of her latest book Helping Yourself Grow Old on her ninetieth birthday.
