Isaiah 58 tells us that as we strive for healing and reconciliation in the world, God will give us strength, that we might be a spring whose waters will never fail. As God renews our strength, we can renew our sense of how God is calling us to use that strength! This retreat offers a framework for vocational discernment that holds spaciousness for places we feel parched and how our ministry might shift over time. God is always speaking into our lives – this retreat offers space and time to go deeper toward God’s renewal of your call, whatever it is.
Join facilitators Alison Wood and Luke Rembold in a space for discernment for folks in all stages of life and discernment, whether you feel you are wandering in the desert or resting by an oasis. If you are curious about the practice of discernment and how deep listening might lead you, you are invited to come explore with us.
Spend time in reflection, conversation, practice, and rest. (Rest is a spiritual practice!) As part of a small group “pod,” explore community discernment alongside building your personal discernment practice. Grow community with other curious folks who are sensing the movement of the Spirit in their lives.
