Friday supper through Sunday lunch

Scripture tells us that Jesus grew “in age, and grace, and wisdom.”  We too, change as we age and in the process our way of seeing and understanding God also changes.  Each time our God view changes we enter into liminal space and have a great desire to recapture our past way of knowing God.  Growth however involves the willingness to stay in the unknown place until something new emerges. 

This workshop will explore some of those liminal experiences. 

Cost $305, Resident with private room; $220 Commuter with meals.  Deposit $100.  Balance due 14 days prior to start of retreat.
