Dr. Terry Nelson-Johnson, Running the Paschal Mystery

Through storytelling, poetry, and humor, Dr. Nelson-Johnson challenges us to enter more deeply into the mystery of grace, the mystery of spirit, the mystery of God.

Author and leader of the acclaimed Beloved retreat, Dr. Nelson-Johnson works with parents, teachers, pastoral staff and faith communities to design and conduct formation programs that encourage, affirm, and inspire.
