7:00 – 7:30 PM Eastern
Leader: Jerusalem Jackson Greer
In the midst of beauty and mess, chaos and monotony, celebrations and mourning, Jerusalem Greer tells her story of finding redemption in what is rather than what could be, by practicing the presence of God through rediscovering ancient contemplative teachings and practices (solitude, study, work, prayer, and service) and pairing them with domestic arts (baking, gardening, sewing). At Home in this Life is a book for readers of most ages, in all stages of life, who are looking for a way to live out their faith – imperfectly, messily, beautifully, – at home and in their communities, no matter what circumstances they find themselves in. During this webinar, Jerusalem will share how she is learning to “dig into the micro when the macro seems so overwhelming” as she continues to explore what it means to live a domestic monastic life in the midst of both exhaustion and celebration.
In addition to being a writer, Jerusalem Jackson Greer is also a minister and speaker and farm-gal novice. She lives with her husband and two teenage sons in rural Arkansas and is the author of “At Home in this Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises,” and “A Homemade Year: The Blessings of Cooking, Crafting and Coming Together.” As a family they are attempting to live a slower version of the modern life. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. She writes about all of this and more at jerusalemgreer.com.
