Write, Study and Celebrate This June!

Love to write? Take the plunge in self-expression with our supportive workshop Tasting Life Twice: A Monthly Writing Circle with Lorri Lizza and Jan De Pinto - a morning of writing and sharing writing. This adventure requires courage and what Frederick Buechner calls “a willingness to run risks, including the risk of making a fool of yourself.” Each month we seek inspiration from a different source. A dedicated time of practice and encouragement from other budding writers will help you hone your craft and make writing a regular part of your life. Sessions are free-standing; you may come to just one, or come to all. Course meets 1st Saturdays at 9:30-11:30 a.m. during the spring semester, with the final meeting on June 2.  Tuition for the course $20 per class and it is held at Interweave’s Summit Center at 31 Woodland Avenue (in the facilities of Calvary Episcopal Church’s Parish Office) in Summit, NJ. Registration is required by email at or by phone at (908) 277-2120.

Explore the four ways Jesus is depicted in the New Testament, making a multi-dimensional portrait in Bible Book of the Month: Four Faces of Jesus with Robert Corin Morris and guests.  The schedule of readings and topics is as follows: March 3 - The New Moses (Matthew); April 7 - A Man on the Move (Mark); May 5 - The Great Physician (Luke); June 2 - The Cosmic Light (John and Paul). Join this course, as an easy way to get some basic knowledge of the Bible! Read the Scripture selection in the month before the study session, using the study guide we’ll provide, then come for presentation and discussion. Drop-ins are always welcome. Tuition for this course is $20 per class, so don’t miss the last meeting of the semester on Saturday, June 2, 9:00-10:30 a.m. as it will be held at at Interweave’s Summit Center at 31 Woodland Avenue (in Calvary Episcopal Church’s Parish Office) in Summit, NJ. Registration is required by email at or by phone at (908) 277-2120.

On Saturday, June 2, 6:00-9:30 p.m. at Christ Church, Short Hills will be Interweave’s annual evening of fabulous silent auction items, good music and great conversation—an essential part of our annual funding.  This year’s theme is Passing the Baton: Honoring Our Founder a special celebration of Interweave’s founder Robert Corin Morris’ 30 years of service, and the fresh leadership our new Executive Director Janet Haag brings to Interweave.
