2/3: Renewal Ministries Teaching Retreat

  • University PC 4540 15th Avenue Northeast Seattle, WA, 98105 United States (map)

Teaching Retreat: “Finding God in the Pain and Messiness of Life”

Dates: February 3, 2018, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Facilitated By: Rev. Dr. Rod & Bev Wilson
Location: University Presbyterian Church, Seattle WA
Cost: $45, Scholarships available (Cost includes materials & snacks.  Lunch is on your own)

Being committed to follow the triune God does not make us immune from experiences of pain and messiness in our lives or the lives of those who are close to us. It is at those times that our faith is tested most heavily as we wonder why we are hurting, why it feels like God is hiding, and why our church community is so unhelpful. During this day together, we will explore these themes and grapple with the question of whether our life in, and with God, is enhanced by the presence of pain and messiness.

This day will combine teaching, reflection, prayer, silence, and art to explore these themes and to invite us into a space where we can receive consolation and peace.
