Our Work is Loving the World
July 2-7, 2017
$400 pp Single Occupancy
This retreat is an invitation to explore our life’s work, our true vocation: to love the world as Jesus did. In the arena of the everyday, how might we fully inhabit our time and place and live contemplatively? How might we cultivate mindfulness and
awareness and practice tenderness for all that is lost and wounded, broken and fragile among us? Come, enter more deeply into the great work of loving our world! Please bring a Bible and a journal for your own times of stillness.
Check-in begins Sunday, July 2 at 2:00 PM
Retreat begins with Dinner at 5:30 PM
