RED TAILED HAWKLet’s fly!

Finishing moments before I’m supposed to get on a plane, I wanted everyone to know that the report on the 2007 HOLSTON CONFERENCE GATHERING is UP!!!! To see it, click here: THE 2007 GATHERING REPORT.

For the full story on the Gathering, just check the link. The Gathering is a Native American spiritual retreat hosted by the Native American Ministries of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church. It is a nondenominational weekend retreat taking place in the Cherokee National Forest of Tennessee. Bill Miller, the brilliant and multi-big-award winning Mohican/German musician, artist, and speaker, is the Gathering’s spiritual leader. If you’d like to meet and experience Bill in a casual and intimate setting, the Gathering is your best bet.

I heartily recommend the Gathering. My multi-national award winning book, Stepping Off the Edge, was born at the Gathering. Yep. I got the first glimmerings of the book there. Several chapters in the book occur at the Gathering. I describe Bill Miller’s famous Saturday concert and all that happened to me. I’ve got drawings based on the people I met. The Gathering is an amazingly beautiful experience. I’ve been back every year but this one––and I would have been there this year except that I had the flu. You can buy copies of my book and benefit the Gathering. Their web page will tell you all about it.

Jaimie Russell, Mona Juckett, & Bill Miller rock at the Gathering.

You can also reach the 2007 Gathering report through the Gathering’s web site: Gathering web site. Check out the many years of the Gathering documented and archived on that site. This is beautiful photography of beautiful people. And a beautiful place. Plus it rocks.

SCOTT CRISP AND BILL MILLER AT THE GATHERING
Bill and Scott jam, again!
(They do this every year.)

I invite you to join me and the people of the Gathering in 2008 as Bill Miller returns to tell it like it is–-and how it can be.

Best wishes at this holy season. I’m off to Santa Fe!
