From time to time Christians are called to take time away from their regular lives in order to devote time to their own spiritual growth.
Jesus modeled this by spending time on his own in the wilderness, and also withdrawing from the business and demands of the crowds to spend time in prayer.
During retreat we make time for prayer and reflection. There will be times when we gather for prayer in the morning and in the evening. We will eat meals together, and we will gather for times of reflection and teaching on the spiritual life. There will also be time for you to pray and reflect on your own. This retreat is in a beautiful place and there will be time to sit by a fire, or walk in creation.
The goal is a life that is closer to God. Our lives are so busy that we can jump from one thing to another and before we know it our lives have passed and we are left wondering where the time went. A retreat is a time to intentionally refocus our lives. The overall goal is to work on our relationship with God by understanding who we are as God’s child in a busy, messy world.
