2014 Hutchmoot Retreat at Laity Lodge: February 20-23
Set in the Hill Country's most spectacular canyon, Laity Lodge presides over an extraordinary confluence of creativity and faith-building. It's a place where artists, speakers, writers, and theologians converge to empower and inspire others in a setting that is safe, serene, and challenging. Laity Lodge is dedicated to enabling Christians to know Jesus deeply and to serve him in the everyday places of their lives.
This coming February, we invite you to come with us into the wilderness, where the Rabbit Room is partnering with Laity Lodge to host the first-ever Hutchmoot Retreat. The retreat will offer content similar to the annual Hutchmoot conference in Nashville, but it is intended to provide a quieter, more relaxing, more reflective experience. Expect four days of good food, new friendships, powerful speakers, and great music--all while surrounded by the remote beauty of the Texas Hill Country.

Featured Speaker: Kathleen Norris
In exploring the spiritual life, her books and poetry are at once intimate and historical, brimming with exasperation and reverence, deeply grounded in both nature and spirit, sometimes funny, and often provocative. Her writing has been formative in the lives and work of many in the Rabbit Room community and we are honored to welcome her to Laity Lodge as the guest speaker for the first Hutchmoot Retreat.
Andy Gullahorn and Jill Phillips
Andy has recorded five solo albums (and one Christmas album with Jill) including his most recent record, the critically acclaimed Beyond the Frame. He also tours the country with Andrew Peterson as one half of the Captains Courageous (Peterson's band).
Jill has recorded seven solo albums (and one Christmas album with Andy) including In This Hour, which was one of our favorite records of 2012. She also joins Andrew Peterson on the Behold the Lamb of God tour each year where she's made the song "Labor of Love" a Christmas classic.

About the Retreat
The program will feature a roomy schedule that provides time to relax, hike, enjoy the art studio, and converse with others.
Guests will fly into San Antonio (the nearest airport) and will need to rent a car or make arrangements for the two hour ride to Laity Lodge. We encourage guests who know one another to work together to share the expense of car rental. (Yes, you will have to drive through a river; No, you won't need an SUV to do it.) Once you arrive at Laity Lodge, everything will be provided for you. All you have to do is relax and enjoy yourself. The retreat ends on Sunday after lunch, allowing guests to return to the airport for late afternoon and evening flights out of San Antonio.
