Finding the Light in the Dark: Embracing Hope in a Time of Chaos

November 19, 2020 - November 22, 2020

We are experiencing a global dark night as we grapple with an unprecedented convergence of global violence, disruption of institutions, and a pandemic. Loss and grief surround us, and there is an awakening reality that nothing will ever be the same. Sitting in a collective darkness provides space to reflect on our trust in the creative potential and grace of God.
This retreat offers four days of short conferences to reflect on the process of grieving, the signs of our times, the creative and reactive potential (based on the 360), and embracing the gift of hope and grace at this moment.


Retreat includes:

Virtual conference each morning (8:30 am PST, 10:30 am CST, 11:30 am EST)

Daily reflection material

Virtual Spiritual Direction (register by October 15, 2020)

Virtual sharing space Friday evening (4 pm PST, 6 pm CST, 7 pm EST)
