Speaker: Laura Harbert
“To all who are beloved of God in Rome, called as saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 1:7
What does it mean to live like a saint as we walk through our very ordinary, very flawed lives? What is holy about my day-to-day life? How often do you experience yourself as a saint as you brush your teeth or look for the keys you know you put somewhere? Join Laura Harbert as she uses Tish Warren’s book, Liturgy of the Ordinary, as a guide to help us open our eyes to ways that God is speaking, inviting and transforming us through the very extraordinary ordinary lives each of us is living!
We are excited to welcome Laura back to Clearwater Lodge! She is a clinical psychologist, an ordained Presbyterian minister, and former Dean of the Chapel and Spiritual Formation at Fuller Theological Seminary. She is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Fuller’s School of Psychology teaching in the area of the integration of psychology and theology. She also has a private practice in Pasadena and is volunteering one day a week at Homeboy Industries, providing therapy for formerly incarcerated men and women and former gang members. Laura’s passion is integrating her experience as a clinical psychologist with spiritual growth and discipleship. She has also enjoyed the opportunity to preach, teach, and lead retreats on subjects that integrate psychology and faith. Laura and her husband Mike have five children between the ages of 26 and 33. She loves reading, exploring on her tandem bike with her husband, cooking, hiking, and trying to become a gardener.

Can you hear Him? In the rush and responsibilities of life’s daily routine, it can be difficult to create space for God – time set apart to hear His voice. And in the busyness of life’s everyday demands, our relationship with the Lord often doesn’t receive the quality, focused time it deserves.
Take time out for yourself – and the One who matters most – at Clearwater Lodge.
