Giving Birth in the Flesh to the Love of God in Particular Moments

January 21 - 23, 2022

In the busyness of life, how can we freely hear and respond to the call we receive in each particle moment of our lives? How can we receive and share God’s love in simple and profound ways?  This retreat will be about finding ways to ground ourselves in who we truly are as individuals and as a community, and coming to know more deeply that in whatever context we inhabit, we can hear God’s call and respond in love.  Although each of us receives a unique call in each moment, ours is not a personal project in which we are left on our own, but a Divine enterprise through which we join our efforts to the Reason for all that is and ever will be.
