Riposo is an Italian word meaning rest, at ease, or time/day off. 
In Italian culture, riposo has an even deeper significance. It's the time when the busyness of life stops and real living begins. It's the time when we gather around the table with those closest - friends, family, loved ones. It's the time when we break from routine to find the real reason we work; we work to live not live to work!
Riposo is a time of rest, rejuvenation, and replenishing - especially with food, cafe', and love!
Come and be a part of this while growing deeper in Christ, Community and in how to live as those dependent on God!

Montague & Jennie Williams

Like you, Montague Williams has noticed that the world of theology sometimes seems strangely disconnected from our everyday lives.  Do Christian practices carry significance and relevance in light of the new questions and struggles we face?  How can Christian theology respond to the complicated issues highlighted in recent news headlines?  Are Christians actually called to change the world?  

With a vocational background in youth ministry and student development and a research focus in Practical Theology and Christian Ethics, Montague Williams serves as a professor of Religion and Philosophy at Eastern Nazarene College.  And he has dedicated his research and teaching to doing theology in a way that interacts with what’s happening here and now in our lives and world.  

Montague grew up in Chicago, where he developed a love for good hot dogs and the Chicago Bulls.  He lived in Kansas City, where he developed a love for good BBQ and met the love of his life (Jennie, not BBQ).  He now lives in the Boston area, where he has developed a love for good seafood and flying kites near the ocean.

Montague and his wife, Jennie, enjoy tag-teaming in ministry as she serves as the Associate Chaplain at Eastern Nazarene College.  Together, they lead a service-learning trip for students every Spring break and regularly have students over for meals, Bible-studies, or just hanging out.  Of course, they realize that many students who come over are there to play with their 4-year old dog named, Biscuit, a.k.a. Bisquick, a.k.a. Biskie, a.k.a. The Bisk.  Both Montague and Jennie are excited to get know the PLNU students during the Riposo Retreat.
