What is Mine to Do? led by Westina Matthews
As we journey towards Easter, we are invited to begin to discern what is ours to do. Join us as we begin to listen with our spiritual hearts and hear what God is asking of us.

9:30 am to 4 pm with breaks and small groups discussion.
On his deathbed, Saint Francis of Assisi told his brothers: "I have done what was mine to do, may Christ now teach you what you are to do." As we begin to move beyond this time of isolation, let us journey together to explore the question of “what is mine to do?” through prayer, journaling, quiet reflection, music, and interactive sharing. Gather for a time of replenishment that will help you live into hope. You will leave with resources and suggested practices for supporting your faith walk.
The Associates Retreat is now open to everyone!

Nurturing Hope: Practices for Our Times
Friday, April 16, 6:30 - 8:00 pm Eastern Time
Saturday, April 17 10:30 am - 4:30 pm Eastern Time
(breaks and reflection will be scattered througout the day)
Nurturing Hope: Practices for Our Times, created and facilitated by Gillian Ahlgren, offers an opportunity to consider insights from visionaries of the past, to reflect on the inner dynamics of personal and communal transformation; and to re-connect with others seeking wisdom, inspiration, and creative energy in these challenging times. Reflective time will help us to see what Teilhard de Chardin called “the slow work of God” in us, as individuals and as communities, to ask questions that will guide us toward greater creativity, and to be instruments and ambassadors of hope,
not because we believe in what seems impossible, but because we do what needs to be done.
Donations of $25 are welcome but not required.
In preparation for Lent, we recommend finding a retreat or practice that works for you.
