Theme: The Fellowship of the Suffering: How Hardship Shapes Us for Growth
Suffering has been defined as having what you don’t want or wanting what you don’t have. Who on earth doesn’t have something they don’t want? Or want something they don’t have? Given this reality, we must ask, How can we learn to live as fully and faithfully as possible, despite the unavoidable, unwelcome presence of suffering? This retreat we will be discovering God’s unexpected invitation to your unwanted pain. Come ready to grow. Come ready to experience community and friendship. And come hungry to experience God’s presence in our midst.
