Kindling the Fire Lectionary Reading Event Brings Clergy to Glisson


A beloved time apart for North Georgia clergy, Kindling the Fire Lectionary Reading Week will return to Glisson Camp and Retreat Center in 2017. 

This year's dates are March 6-8, one day shorter than years past. 

"We are trying a slightly abbreviated format," explained Rev. Emily Case, one of the organizers of Kindling. "Instead of planning for 10 months, we will hold this retreat twice a year (spring and fall) and plan 6 months at a time. This will allow us to be more responsive to the needs of our communities. Plus, we will all be able to be home in time for Wednesday Night Activities!"

This year's retreat will focus on texts in August 2017-Epiphany in January 2016.

Not changed are the expectations of powerful worship and a fresh look at scripture. Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson will be present on Tuesday, March 7, and District Superintendents and church leaders will read scripture aloud. 

Registration is currently open with early bird pricing through January 31.
