Outdoor Contemplative Retreat:
Beatitudes for LifeYoung Adults (College, 20s - 30s)
A unique Young Adult Retreat where we will have an opportunity to go deeper into selected scripture passages through Spiritually Directed, guided reflections and extended periods of silence.
- Friday, Nov 6, 2020 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
Consider thanking God for the breath you are taking walking the grounds: the breeze against your face; the sun radiating energy gifting you warmth; the ground, grass, dirt, cedar chips under your feet. Through the eight Beatitudes, we will explore what brings true joy. Once again, we will put you in a Position to change your vision and invite you to look through a new lens in order to be happy (blessed), merciful, willing to offer peace, clean of heart, and meek. We will Ponder ways to bring the Beatitudes into our day-to-day circumstances. And we will Pray and converse with God speaking, listening, and considering His natural creation while recognizing our areas of resistance to an invitation from Him on this walk.
Each Outdoor Contemplative retreat has a specific “Prayer Gear GuideTM” designed for that outing with prayer prompts to guide you in your time of silent reflection. There will be an extended amount of time to hike, rest, contemplate, regroup and to share if inclined with fellowship over lunch (not included).
