Navigating the Chaos with Grace
Led By: Rev. Dr. Jane Tomaine
Fee: $395 (Deposit: $100)
April 17- April 20, 2018
Been in a heated argument recently? Differing views about government, legislation, how children should be raised, how money should be spent and a myriad of other subjects can easily escalate into hurtful and harmful words. This retreat will give you insight, understanding and tools to help you navigate today’s volatile topics ranging from family and religion to politics. Our guide will be the ancient and relevant Rule of Benedict, the Rule used by the brothers at Holy Cross, along with other contemporary voices of wisdom. Benedict lived in tumultuous times not unlike ours. He can help us learn to be a presence of grace and hope as we struggle with others over the issues and conversations of today. We can become peace-makers centered in Christ, and in the process, receive the gift of maintaining our own sanity!
