For clergy, COVID-19 has shifted the very fabric of our personal and pastoral lives.
In such anxious and demanding times, we need to slow down and drink deeply from the well of Living Water within, which is the very presence of the Holy One. Here, we will find our spiritual center grounded in the Great Love that will renew us and form us to do the work we have been given to do with a spirit of love and compassion.
During this free retreat time, expect to be guided in personal reflection, to hear teaching on leading from the spiritual heart, to share spiritually rich conversation with colleagues, and to be invited into the Holy Silence in which we dwell with God and God is so very present with us.
The retreat will be on Zoom and will begin with a short session on Sunday evening after supper and continue Monday morning until mid-afternoon. At present, we are planning to go from 7:00 to 9:00 PM ET on Sunday evening and 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM ET on Monday. We are still exploring how to accommodate those of you farther to the west.
