A FIVE-DAY JOURNEY THROUGH HEALING

ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS - THERE ARE OPENINGS ON THIS RETREAT DUE TO CANCELLATIONS.
Many of us are among the walking wounded. Sometimes we know it; oftentimes, we don’t. We just know that we feel driven, drained, and/or chronically distracted, all of which are symptoms of unhealed, unacknowledged, or under-healed pain. In this five-day retreat, Betty Hill Crowson will outline a “process” for identifying, moving through, and recovering from these inner wounds of ours.

We are living through the greatest shifts in theological thinking ever. The biblical and doctrinal notion of "God" is giving way to notions of "God" being shaped in our contemporary knowledge of the universe and our place in it. The retreat will explore this shift and articulate ground on which to stand as we consider revelation, Jesus, prayer, and the urgent need to shape religious belief in accord with reality.
