Carl McColman and Lalor Cadley Lead Spring Contemplative Retreats
Ahhh...a contemplative retreat. It simultaneously sounds refreshing and intimidating. A contemplative retreat is time set aside from your daily (read – busy, hectic, possibly even stressful) routine to intentionally engage and deepen your relationship with God.
It is refreshing…to pause and rest in God’s presence, to allow God to fill you, renew you, and work within you in ways and places that only you and God know the need.
It is intimidating…spending time alone in silence with God. “What the heck am I going to say or do with that much contemplative time?” you might wonder.
May 5-9, our experienced contemplative retreat leaders will gently guide you through this time. So whether this is your first contemplative retreat or one of many, come and explore God’s presence in your life.
