Contemplative Retreat

with Paul Knitter

July 26 - 31, 2019

Join Paul Knitter as you are guided through experiences that deepen your understanding of God, Christ, prayer, life after death and work for peace and justice. Relax and be refreshed in contemplative peace. “In meditation we sit with Christ’s Spirit. Silence is the means of recognizing it, letting it be, opening oneself to it. To sit in silence is for me to sit in awareness of ‘Not I, but Christ.’” – Paul Knitter
