Streams in the Wilderness: Finding God in Barren Seasons
This retreat offers us the invitation to pause and name the wilderness seasons—whether we find ourselves in one now, or simply want to create space to reflect on the wilderness Jesus spent 40 days in before starting his ministry. Wilderness can be a disorienting space. How does God meet us in these places? Through contemplative practices (lectio, breath prayer, art, and personal and group reflection) we will reflect on how the wilderness shapes us, and how God invites us to know who we are and whose we are when all else feels stripped. Together we will notice how God wants to meet us in these seemingly desolate and disorienting places.
