RETREAT 2017 INFORMATION:
Retreat Leaders: Jeffrey and Johanna Lawrence
Retreat Focus: Slowing Down to Catch Up With God
At our 2016 Synod we were reminded of the importance of the ‘contemplative disciples’ in the life and ministry of a ‘Christ-centre disciple’, e.g., silence, stillness, solitude, listening and contemplative prayer and living. Our 2017 Presbytery retreat will give us the opportunity to learn and use some of these contemplative skills, practices and disciplines. It will also provide us with space and time to slow down to keep pace with and be present with God.
