Holly Whitcomb, a pastor and clergywoman in the United Church of Christ for three decades, will deliver the annual Lakeland College Founder's Day Lecture on Tuesday, Feb. 5.
Whitcomb's address, entitled, "Being Present to Your Life: Spiritual Tools for the Spiritual Journey," will be at 11 a.m. in the Bradley Fine Arts Building on the Lakeland campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Founders Day is an annual Lakeland event that recognizes the church's contributions to Lakeland and provides a time to reflect on Lakeland's strong tradition with the United Church of Christ.
Whitcomb graduated from Yale Divinity School in 1978 and has served churches in Connecticut, Iowa and Wisconsin. She is also a graduate of the two-year program for spiritual directors at the Shalem Institute in Bethesda, Md.
A widely-traveled retreat leader who directs Kettlewood Retreats, she is also a spiritual director and writer who has published dozens of articles on spirituality. She is the author of four books including "Feasting with God and Practicing Your Path." Her latest book, "The Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting," sold out in three weeks and had to be immediately reprinted. It took her to New York City where she did a taping for the popular TV show, "New Morning."
Whitcomb lives in suburban Milwaukee with her husband Dr. John Whitcomb, an emergency physician. They are the parents of two adult children, David and Kate.
