Amazing Grace: The Wonderment of Grace in Our Lives

February 7, 2017 - February 10, 2017
West Park NY


Tuesday, February 7 – Friday, February 10, 2017

Led by Janet Corso

Grace has been called truly amazing, for we have experienced it as such. It is undeserved, beyond our control or manipulation, and given when we least expect it. Our capacity to receive grace, to be available and open to it, and to recognize it when it is offered, is dependent on our openheartedness, poverty of spirit and awareness. This retreat will explore the ins and outs of grace, how we might block or refuse it, how we may be instruments of it and where it has amazingly appeared in our lives.
