Journeying with Jonah
Guided Retreat: January 23-25, 2015
The story of Jonah is one of Scripture’s best known narrative adventures, but it is far more than just another “big fish” tale! It’s a story of shadows and the light that exposes them; of repentance and forgiveness, of seeking – and finding – one’s true vocation.
We’ll explore the question that sometimes sends us scurrying: “How do you respond to a call from God, especially when it is to something you don’t particularly want to do?!”
Led by the Rev. Frances Drolet-Smith, an Oblate of SSJD, who has journeyed with Jonah a long while, alternately amazed by his audacity and sympathetic towards him. Frances is a parish priest, lives in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, with her husband Paul, and has two grown children.
