“Our Shelter from the Stormy Blast”: Spiritual Reflections on 9/11, Pandemic, and Change

FRIDAY EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY NOON, JUNE 10–12, 2022, at St. Andrew’s House Retreat Center on beautiful Hood Canal

Facilitated by The Rev. Dr. Stuart Hoke & Dean Steve Thomason

The world has changed…again. As a priest on staff at Trinity Church Wall Street in New York City, The Rev. Dr. Stuart Hoke happened to be standing under the North Tower of the World Trade Center when it was attacked on September 11, 2001. For his talks at our retreat, Stuart will narrate his eyewitness accounts of the day’s events and the recovery efforts that followed in his parish church and neighborhood in the ensuing months. He will also reflect on the many spiritual awakenings that emerged from the ashes—learnings that touch all of us as we navigate life in the 21st century, especially in the wake of a global pandemic. Join Dr. Hoke and Dean Steve Thomason for this weekend of spiritual reflection and renewal.
