An Evening with Carrie Newcomer
Sacred Stones Ministries invites you to join us at Swallow Hill Music (71 E. Yale Ave., Denver) on Friday, April 7, 8:00 p.m. for a concert by Carrie Newcomer. Tickets are $21 each, with $2 of each ticket going to Sacred Stones Ministries’ Scholarship Fund.
In case Carrie Newcomer is new to you, she is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and educator. She has been described as a “soaring songstress” by Billboard and a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe. The Austin Statesman described her as having “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate” and Rolling Stone once said, she “asks all the right questions.” Most simply put, the Dallas Morning News said, “she’s the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, ‘that is so true.'”
Newcomer, a contemplative Quaker, cuts across secular and spiritual boundaries. In recent years, Newcomer has emerged as a prominent voice for progressive spirituality, social and environmental justice. Carrie internationally facilitates workshops and presents keynotes on the topics of songwriting, spirituality & vocation in secular, college/educational and spiritual settings.
Join us for a wonderful evening of music! To reserve your ticket or if you have questions, contact Nani Arning (Nani@SacredStonesMinistries.org or 719-330-9216).

1. Kids can be kind This is the hardest one, and the most important, for my money. Many adults would recognise that it’s easier to be the CEO of a do-gooding international charity than to be consistently kind and loving … Continue reading
My family lived in Louisville, Kentucky for six years during my children’s young lives. The oldest was 14 when we moved and the youngest was 3. Snow was a rarity, but when it did snow – it came with a … Continue reading
Today is a special day. My oldest granddaughter turns 10. She is very excited and rightly so. Watching her run out of school and run into my arms for her birthday hug reminded me of the important responsibility we adults … Continue reading
