All Church Fall Retreat

September 30, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - October 2, 2016 @ 2:00 pm

Life Together: Spirituality in Christian Community

Life together with other Christians is at the same time a great blessing and a challenge. In our individualistic society, we hold back, guarding ourselves from the vulnerability and commitment of authentic community. And yet, it’s in such community that the Spirit teaches us to love as God loves.

In this retreat, with some help from St. Ignatius of Loyola and his Spiritual Exercises (among others), we’ll explore together four key dimensions of spirituality in community—letting our truest selves be known; growing deeper through shared spiritual practices; finding encouragement through accountability; and blessing one another on our common journey. We’ll learn and practice together as we explore what it means to live the Christian life together.

We will have programming and activities for children ages 2 and up. They will be exploring and learning some of the same concepts as the adults in their teaching time and will also have the opportunity to connect with God by enjoying creation!
Contact Jen McCaslin if you have any questions. (jen_mccaslin@hotmail.com)

It is our desire for you and your family to be present in all events; to assist with this, we hope to have childcare available for children younger than 2 years old as well. This is a retreat: if ever your needs or your family’s needs conflict with the schedule, you are encouraged to practice the gift of self-care.
