How did I get so lucky to be invited to participate in the Southern Lights Conference. Please register and join me and the many fantastic speakers and musicians coming to this event.

Date: January 13-15, 2023

Location: Epworth By the Sea | St. Simon’s Island, Georgia

Hello fellow traveler. If you are like a lot of us today, you are probably worn out from the stress of the pandemic and need a break from all of the political, polarizing noise that surrounds us.

You know, focus on beauty, goodness, and conversation that lifts you up and helps you reimagine the world and your faith all in a lovely contemplative setting.

If this sounds like the kind of escape, you need? Consider joining us at Southern Lights Conference, January 13 – 15, 2023, on beautiful St. Simon Island, GA, as we reimagine faith in…

Word – Poetry and Song

the World – Liberation and Justice

and Cosmos – Faith and Science

For the past 18 years, Southern Lights (formerly January Adventure) has been a beacon of light for leaders and forward thinkers who take our call seriously to “…do justice and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God.” Through sessions interacting with a stellar line-up of speakers, special guests, and fellow guests, registrants are encouraged to think more deeply about their faith and how to live as followers of Jesus in our fast-changing world.

We invite you to gather with us (live and virtually), share with like-minded sojourners and connect with the beauty of creation.
