Christ the King Retreat House
“Haunted By God: Echoes On The Journey” This silent guided retreat will combine morning presentations on being ‘haunted by God’ with several film screenings offering key insights through the visual art of storytelling.. Presentations will ‘touch into’ major themes in order to notice:“Where am I today? What is God inviting me to now in my spiritual journey?”
We will be invited to ‘pray anew’ with the God of Love who ‘haunts’ us
(in the most profound sense of that word/Word).
Prayer suggestions, films, songs, and insights will accent presentations on:
- God’s call within a prayerful/contemplative life of service
- connections between passion and mysticism
- ever-deepening challenges in the Life of Love
- links between ‘life transitions’ and ‘Spirit-transformations’
- the ‘love for mercy’ and the ‘mercy of love’
- our ongoing growth in compassionate, just, peaceful living.
N.B. Please bring a Bible and a notebook/journal.
Offering: $475, Religious: $450, Commuters: $250. A $100 non-refundable deposit required and a $50 non-refundable deposit for commuters is required.
