Dates: April 29, 2019 – May 4, 2019
Price: $495.00 – $1,275.00

St. Irenaeus is said to have declared, “The glory of God is the person who is totally alive.” It is a beautiful sentiment but a challenge to achieve. This is especially true for those who serve congregations as pastors and lay preachers. The work can be exhausting and could deplete soul, mind, and body. This retreat will focus on the question, “What would bring us totally alive?” How might each of us embody the Incarnation? Where might the Holy Spirit be inviting us to live whole, holy, and integrated lives?

With the psalms as our soundtrack, this retreat will be led by Bill Carter who describes his work as a “jazz pastor.” Join in a series of conversations about developing a pastoral life that is vibrant, creative, humane, and “syn-copated,” all in service to the Risen Christ whose desire is that we flourish in his ministry
