The Miraculous in the Mundane:
finding a healthy spirituality in the 21st century
Pittman McGehee, a widely known lecturer and educator
who specializes in the work of Carl Jung, returns to the McMichael Lecture Series at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in
Fayetteville for a lecture on Friday evening, October 3, and a workshop on Saturday, October 4. He will also preach on Sunday,
“Spirituality is the deep human longing to translate the transcendent into the immanent through
experience and reflection upon it,” McGehee said. In his Friday evening lecture, “The Miraculous in the Mundane:
finding a healthy spirituality in the 21st century,” McGehee will explore his thoughts about the nature of healthy
and unhealthy religion and address why God is an experience and not a concept. The 7:00 p.m., October 3, lecture will be preceeded
by a reception at 6:00 p.m. provided by St. Spatula’s Guild. All are welcome. There is no admission charge
and childcare will be provided in the parish nursery.
The Saturday workshop, titled “The Religious Nature
of the Psyche,” will feature a lecture, discussion and experiential exercises. McGehee will explore with participants
how a healthy religious viewpoint can be an invaluable resource in one’s journey to wholeness.
