Sabbath Time with Howard Thurman: A Weekend Retreat back

May 13 - May 15, 2022


Theme: Sabbath Time with Howard Thurman.  “There is the rest of detachment and withdrawal when the spirit moves into the depths of the region of the Great Silence, where world weariness is washed away and blurred vision is once again prepared for the focus of the long view where seeking and finding are so united that failure and frustration, real though they are, are no longer felt to be ultimately real.” So wrote the twentieth century African American minister and theologian Howard Thurman (1899-1981). Mentally, physically, and spiritually full up with the work and worries of contemporary life? Come away for a weekend of Sabbath grounded in silence, contemplative chants, and select prayers and meditations from Howard Thurman.

Leader: Ridgeway Addison, seasoned theological educator, Baptist minister, musician, and Thurman scholar.
