In Person Retreat: Signs of Spring~ Living Faithfully with Patterns in the Land

With Evan Clendenin and John Creasy

April 21 - 23, 2023

When you pay attention to the seasons, rhythms and patterns of life on earth, you receive the
ability to live in a more faithful, grounded and complete way. This retreat invites you to start shaping your life and faith more seasonally. This weekend retreat will provide time for prayer, semi-guided exploration of wooded land, practical reflection, and teaching on patterns and rhythms in scripture.  There will be music throughout to deepen your spirituality including a very special presentation of music on Saturday night.

Meals and retreat rooms are included in the cost of the retreat.
