A retreat is an opportunity to pivot our lives through a healthy interruption of our routine.  Getting out of our daily patterns and familiar surroundings it is a time we can find some rest, invest in new relationships and enjoy refreshment for our lives.  My hope for this time is that we might open our minds, hearts and lives to how God might be prompting and directing us in our spiritual passage. May this be a time for us to become more fully human; refreshed and renewed that we might bring greater glory to God. Every year we invite a guest speaker to join us.  This year, we are welcoming Nick Ressler.

Talk Summary:

We all have questions. Questions about the future, questions about love, questions about pain, questions about family. Our questions often highlight what we’re focused on … what’s important to us. Jesus had questions too. In fact, one of his favorite things was to ask questions – to highlight what is important to Him. Let’s look at the questions Jesus asks and then see where our questions weave together with Jesus hope for our lives.
