THE 2019 REFRESH YOUR SOUL SPEAKERS

Kathryn Spink

Keynote Address:  Living with Meaning and Purpose

By tracing the life and work of the “Saint of Calcutta”, Kathryn Spink, her authorized biographer, will explore what made her care of the poor, the sick and the dying so exceptional-the priority she gave to dedication compassion, respect for difference, and being humbly and fully present to the individual; her identification of the need to meet emotional and spiritual problems, and her emphasis not so much on prolonging life at all costs, as on enabling people to die with dignity and surrounded by love. Doing “small things with great love” was a transforming principle that gave meaning and purpose to her life and one she stressed was accessible to all. 

About Keynote Kathryn Spink and VIP Luncheon Speaker

As the authorized biographer of Mother Teresa, Kathryn was involved with her work for over seventeen years, and her highly acclaimed biography of the "Saint of Calcutta" became a New York Times bestseller. She has spoken internationally including an address at the United Nations conference in 2016.


The Purpose of Life is a Life of Purpose

Rabbi Abie IngberEvery farmer knows that is is not about the number of barns you build, but about the seeds you plant; every parent knows it is not about the number of times you push the swing, but about how your child soars when they leave your playground.  So it is with our lives.  When the purpose of life is a life of purpose, the intergration of spirit, heart, hands and mind finds its greatest completion.
