Finding God Abiding: An Overnight Retreat (onsite)
Christine Marie Eberle
July 22 - 23, 2022
“My life has been a tapestry,” sang Carole King, yet most days we can’t really grasp the great tapestry that is our life. Gazing too closely at the tangled strands and frayed knots of our false starts and failures, often we see just the back side, or one square inch at a time. Only God beholds it whole: not a random collection of short stories, but one great narrative of grace at work.
In this retreat we will take time to consider four movements common to every life: awakening to the world around us, discovering and rediscovering our path, practicing love in its many forms, and grieving the loss of much that we hold dear. Reflecting on the twists and turns of our individual journeys, we will notice the presence of God, abiding with us through it all.
Our time together will incorporate communal prayer, presentation, conversation, and reflective silence. The retreat begins with dinner on Friday and includes breakfast (8:30 a.m.) and lunch on Saturday. Overnight space is limited, so register soon!
