Poems for a Dangerous Time: A Gathering Around the Psalms

February 20–22, 2022AdultContinuing Education
This event is hosted by Montreat Conference Center
Registration is now closed. If you missed online registration, you can register in person at 4:30pm on Sunday in Assembly Inn’s Belk meeting room.

Inspired by the students and family of Patrick Miller, this gathering will explore the rich and varied ways biblical Psalms give voice to the cries of the believer: in lament, in anger, in praise, in rejoicing.

According to Pat’s family and his students at both Union Seminary (VA) and Princeton, nothing could honor him more than a gathering around the Psalms, exploring the way they sustain communities of faith, even – or especially – in dangerous times.

Registration includes lodging and meals in Assembly Inn. Commuter rates are also available. Register online by clicking the button above, or to register by phone for this event, please contact the conference registrar, Susan Akduman, at 828.419.9829.
