Pilgrim New Year Retreat

Saturday 20th January 2018, 9.30am - 4.30pm
Sophia, 225 Cross Rd, Cumberland Park.

The “in-between” spaces and experiences in life

We often live our lives in the midst of uncertainty and change ... and sometimes in utter chaos! This can be due to a change in personal circumstances or changes in the world around us - nothing seems ever to be settled these days. How do we as Christian disciples/ pilgrims live faithfully and productively in such unsettling circumstances, and how can we be a source of strength and encouragement for others in their ‘liminal’ lives? How do we discern the presence of God in the liminal spaces and seasons of our lives?

The day, facilitated by Rev Dr Greg Elsdon will include some biblical and theological reflecAons, some poetry, visual art, and cartoons for reflection and inspiraton, Times of quietness for personal prayer/ reflection/ journaling and times for sharing, praying together and offering mutual support.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided.
