Rev. Dr. Tobin Wilson’s Book Launch – Lake Burien

Seattle Presbytery

You are cordially invited….


Friday, Saturday and Sunday; March 11, 12 and 13
Cost: $20 for the weekend

This event, sponsored by Lake Burien Presbyterian Church, is an exciting weekend featuring the launch of Rev. Dr. Tobin Wilson’s new book ARETÉ AGAIN, the art of Linda McCray, and the music of Mark Wagner.

The weekend begins with an art exhibit that runs Friday at 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The conference begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday with registration and book signing and moves through worship with the music of Mark Wagner and talks with Tobin Wilson and Linda McCray. On Saturday the art exhibit continues from 9 a.m. The conference brings more worship with Mark Wagner, talks and discussions with Tobin Wilson and Linda McCray, concluding at noon. The art exhibit is open again on Sunday morning at 9 a.m. with our regular Sunday morning worship service at 9:30 with Linda McCray providing the meditation: Visio Divina: Praying with Contemporary Icons to Open Windows to the Divine.

The book shares compelling stories from Rev. Wilson’s life in ministry—from the traumatic to the hilarious to the inspiring. Mark Wagner’s life and music are shaped by a visit to the Village of Hope in Northern Uganda; he brings that vision to worship at the conference. Linda McCray’s artwork is incredible. For instance, this featured triptych, Passion to Pentecost, is 6 x 9 feet and created with acrylics and sand from Jerusalem.

"I have always been impressed at the depth from which Tobin leads as a pastor. Reading this book has helped me better understand why. A deep thank you to Tobin for reminding us all that the wellspring of grace that he has been so deeply nourished by, is available to us all."

“I love this book. I was swept up in your story on the front end. Thrilled and a little amazed at the intimacy and respect you had for your readers. But I didn't need to be concerned. You brought the camera lens back and allowed for a thoughtful and wide ranging discussion on post-modernism, sin and the struggle to be human along with a healthy critique of American consumerism, and Western power paradigms. It was thrilling. It has lots of fun parables and story take-aways. Speakers will love this one! But mainly I was struck by one man's attempt to live humanly. And the shadow that quest can cast for the rest of us.”
