    I’m here at your website hoping to find Gregory Wolfe as a teacher. If you all haven’t read his “The Wound of Beauty” from Image journal, Winter 2007-2008 #56, someone really needs to do so. I’ve shared it with Christian educators and my Renovar√© cohort and just about anyone I can get to read it. Secondly, when I saw there was a workshop on liturgy, I was also hoping to see the other James Smith listed, James K.A. Smith — his writings on the why and how liturgy influences our lives (whether the liturgy of the marketplace or the university or…) is really good. Thirdly, I wish The Apprentice Gathering and the Renovar√© reunion retreat were not happening the same exact dates! I’m hoping the reunion dates will change.

      Hello Deborah!!

      I am thrilled you are so interested in the topic of Beauty and the offerings we have set for The Apprentice Gathering this year. We do know of Gregory Wolfe and did consider him at part of the line up. However, there are many criteria that goes into that decision and unfortunately this year we were not able to invite Mr. Wolf. We did invite James KA Smith and he was unavailable for the dates of our event. We do agree that both men are incredibly gifted and have inspiring words. Unfortunately, we can’t get everyone we would like.

      It would be wonderful to have you at the event and I do respect the struggle of having two events on the same weekend. If Renovaré is interested in having their reunion as part of our greater conference we could make that work. Just a thought.

      Please let me know if I can answer any additional questions.

    Hello, I registered early but the confirmation does not reflect the early registration discount. Can you pass along a little reassurance please? Thanks

    Kara, thank you so much for your reply! I was concerned afterwards that it might have sounded as if I was not excited about the speakers and teachers already lined up. I am VERY excited. It looks like a wonderful gathering!

      You are so welcome. I take all inquiries about any of our programs seriously and feel that anyone that has a question should be responded to. I think that if you take the time to reach out to us it is our duty to respond. Some questions are not always easy to answer, but we try. And just for the record, I did not find your email offensive at all. I appreciate that people care about what we do and want to make our event the best possible. We know lots of authors and writers and speakers but hearing what our “tribe” is wanting to learn more about and who they are listening to is very helpful in our continued planning and growth.

      I look forward to meeting you in September. Have a blessed day!
