A Life Re-Imagined.
This is the theme for our retreat, Friday, November 11 (7-9pm) and Saturday, November 12 (9-4) at Peace Lutheran Church. We are going to take the transformative insights we have been working with in our sermon series this fall and do two things simultaneously: 1) Help you take a deep, accepting look at your present life, and 2) Give you the framework to create an intentional plan for the next phase.
Here are the themes we will be engaging:
Every Day a Birth-Day: For the first time since I have been at Peace (that’s a long time!) I will teaching the Cycle of Grace—a gift one of my favorite teachers, Trevor Hudson, has given me in the past few years.
Like a Child: To reimagine our days, our lives, our relationships, we have to develop a new capacity to dream, to be child-like in wonder, to hope.
Adolescence—The Struggle is Real: Much of our growth happens through times of struggle and pain. How can we embrace the renewing potential of these times in our lives?
Adulting: How do we make peace with the normal, monotonous, non-inspiring tasks of adult life? Can we find joy in the ordinary, pleasure in simplicity?
Everyday a Birth-Day: In God’s grace, each day is a new day. The past is gone. The future awaits. With the intentional plans you will have created, the present moment will be one to be celebrated—a birth-day, of sorts!
This retreat is not just for the Peace community. It would be a great time for you to invite a good friend or a neighbor or someone you know from the gym—anyone who is open to experience the renewing power of God’s grace and love. Anyone who might want to Re-Imagine Their Everyday Life.
The cost is $25. I will leading these sessions along with Kevin Ryan, our mindfulness and yoga instructor. Michael Lester, our Minister of Music, will be creating times of musical reflection and meditation.
It’s Monday. Do you need to get a gift for yourself? Join us on November 11 and 12. A Life Re-Imagined. Peace. Kai
