Knowing God More Personally

February 11 - 12, 2022

Many of us know about God, but how well do we know God? In other words, are we in relationship with God, as we would be in relationship with a friend or a loved one? We can access that depth of relationship with God, and there is a great peace in doing so. This retreat will feature discussions on our image of God, learning to be present to the moment, tips for recognizing God’s movements in our lives, and the idea of an economy of mercy. The experience promises to leave retreatants with meaningful, practical ways to grow closer to God…and each other.
