Does slowing down and stillness sound wonderful but you wouldn’t know where to begin?
Want to be intentional with Lent this year but unsure what that means for you?
Does the idea of a retreat sound great, but your schedule won’t let you “get away?”
What will it be like?
We’ll start with a light breakfast in the upper narthex and then move into a period of singing and Scripture meditation. This allows us to really focus on the words we are hearing, to notice each of them. It’s an invitation into simplicity.
There will be a brief teaching on Mark 1:35-39, when Jesus drew away from the busyness of life to be with his Father to pray. Why did he do it? How did it help him? Can we do that too?
After the teaching, there will be a period of time designated for silent reflection. You can journal, walk around the neighborhood or to one of the nearby parks, pray in the sanctuary or elsewhere in the church or just be with God however feels best to you. It can be amazing what happens when we spend intentional time in quiet with him.
We will conclude our time of solitude with space for reflection together.
Scott and I are really looking forward to this morning retreat and sharing it with you. Bring a Bible and a journal, or just bring yourself. Hope to see you there.
