Cancelled - Awaiting New Birth - From Root to Shoot back

December 6 - December 8, 2019

This retreat has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience.

SHOOT. On this Advent weekend we will have time
in silence to reflect on the mystery of God’s call to
new life, and our readiness to be part of new birth
emerging from the old. We will look to the land for
signs of gestation, letting the fallow fields and
woodlands teach us what it might mean to invite God
to call us into something new. “A shoot shall come
out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow
out of his roots. The spirit of the LORD shall rest there,
the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of
counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the
fear of the LORD.” (From Isaiah 11:1-2)
