Franciscan Renewal Center

Put January 30, 2016 on your calendar!

Tom will be leading a one-day retreat at the Franciscan Renewal Center (The CASA) on Saturday, January 30, 2016.
Title: Discovering God Within

Short description of Retreat day
We will spend time in prayer, music, silence and group discussion. 
Taking our lead from the saints and mystics who have gone before us, 
participants will be encouraged to discover and nourish the divine life 
within through prayer, study and contemplation – and incarnating that life 
in our daily living and learning to express it through the arts.
All are welcome! Be nourished, be encouraged, be loved by I AM WHO AM.

Time Stands Still

Time Stands Still

Dear Friends

I hope you are well. Life is wonderful and life is challenging too. There is a great band called The Decemberists. The title of the new CD is called What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World. The music is great, the songwriting, production etc… Its very artistic and wonderful. But that title! Wow ~ Pascal Mystery said in “layman’s” terms. The Decemberists make really, really good music. Anyway, I SHOULD be telling you about my new record in hopes that you will check it out. Please do! TIME STANDS STILL is getting a wonderful response from friends, fellow artists, faith communities – and even some press. You can find it on and
I pray many blessings on your life. Pray for me too.
God alone is enough + I AM WHO AM is with us always,

Jan 2014 Retreat

Finding Peace in the Storm of God’s Love

A Weekend Retreat with Tom Booth and Friends

Jan. 10-12, 2014

Come and spend a weekend retreat with Tom Booth (composer,
musician and retreat facilitator) and his friends.
This experiential retreat will offer participants a time for reflection
and sharing about who God is, how God speaks, and how to pray to a God
who is everywhere and within, including through the storms of life that
seem to surround and sometimes engulf us. The retreat will also offer
participants an opportunity to uncover inner hopes and dreams as well as
what gives them life. It will be a spacious blend of silence, prayer, dialogue
with others as well as simple teachings about a contemplative way of life.
