What Leaders are Saying About Deep Calls to Deep

"I like the title and hope to sink down into the depths of myself and respond to the depths of others. I hope we will all go down deeper into God, into our hearts, into both silence and language."—The Rev. Gail Epes, Peer Group Facilitator

"I love preaching, and I have noticed over the years that it is a spiritual experience for me as well as an intellectual one. I'm interested in the program because spirituality is mentioned as a significant focus of the experience. I'm also interested in working with a group of preachers who desire to deepen their preaching life."—The Rev. Dr. Hilary Smith, Preaching Guide
