March 4 - March 6, 2022
Theme: Our Greatest Gift. Because of the pandemic, the shadow of death has touched many of us with a fresh awareness of our mortality. Using meditations based on Henri Nouwen’s book, Our Greatest Gift, this retreat will explore dying as a spiritual passage. Written just two years before his own untimely death, Nouwen guides us into the grace of dependence and the power of presence. As we emerge from the darkest days of winter, we will let Dayspring teach us more about release and remembrance in nature’s cycle of seasons. We will find renewed energy for our life and work in this retreat as we move toward the first days of spring.
Leader: Marjory Zoet Bankson, a seasoned spiritual guide, Chair of the Church of the Saviour Council, and a Steward of Seekers Church.
