Growing our God Images

Offered by Mary Ellen Ashcroft
Friday, October 5 – Saturday, October 6, 2018
$155

During this retreat we will explore how our god images must change as we reshape our broken stories within life’s realities. We will delve into our own life thresholds that have forced us to retell our stories. We will consider god images we’ve had to (or need to) abandon as we’ve outgrown them, as well as inviting a bigger god to fill those spaces. Mary Ellen will provide input on spiritual growth and god images, sharing from her new book OMG: Growing With Our God Images. There will be time for quiet, being outdoors, sharing and worship.

The Rev. Dr. Jerry Doherty will share how the lifestyle, sacred place, meditation, pilgrimage, and community are all vital parts of the life of the church today. There will be regular times of silent meditation reflection and prayer to reflect on this most holy time of year.
