With memories of Opening Week fresh in our minds, we’re excited to announce more free events at North Wind Manor throughout the month of August!
Next month, North Wind Manor will be hosting a lecture by Steve Guthrie on the relationship between human and divine creativity, a live filming of The Habit Podcast featuring Don Chaffer, and a live filming of The Molehill Podcast. Read on for more information.
North Wind Manor Lectures: Steve Guthrie (August 10th)
Like most Christians, I pray for God’s help in my creative work—when I am writing an article, for instance, or giving a talk. But, if God were to answer those prayers, what would that answer look like? Does God do everything while I just get out of the way? Does God do half the work and leave the other half to me (maybe writing the odd numbered pages and leaving me to write the evens)? Or did God just give me a dollop of something called “talent” or “ability” at the beginning of my life, and now it’s up to me to make something out of it? In short, who’s hand “holds the pen”? How should we think about the relationship between God’s creating, and our own?
This talk, which was the keynote address at a recent National Convention of the Lilly Network of Church-related Colleges and Universities, will offer a picture of making that leaves room for both God’s activity and our own.
The Habit Podcast LIVE: Sad Stories Told for Laughs with Don Chaffer (August 24th)
The Habit Podcast is a series of conversations with writers about writing, hosted by Jonathan Rogers. In this episode, Jonathan will be joined by writer and musician Don Chaffer for a special edition of his summer series, “Sad Stories Told for Laughs.”
The Molehill Podcast LIVE (September 1st)
The Molehill Podcast is an audio anthology of treasured writings, read aloud by the writers themselves, hosted by Drew Miller. Each episode features poetry, stories, and shenanigans, from dubious facts and words of befuddlement to original house music by Zach & Maggie. More details about this particular episode of The Molehill Podcast to come.
We want events at North Wind Manor to be a gift to the community, so registration is free! If you would like to help support ongoing events, you can give directly to the North Wind Manor fund, or consider becoming a Rabbit Room member.
We’re just getting started with live events at the Manor, and we can’t wait to share with you more of our plans for the rest of the year. Stay tuned for news and updates, and we’ll look forward to seeing you soon.
